just because i clicks when u start it it doesnt mean u need those parts if it clicks and engine doesnt turn something is wrong with starting system or engine first spin the engine by hand two or three revolutions to make sure engine is not seized (highly unlikely) unless neglected or chain slipped or popped if free to turn by hand then ur looking at the starting system if it doesnt spin without forcing it pull belt off and try again does it spin ? if engine spins freely the first time than check power to might be losing power through the starter relay or something let me know if that helps
