Have you checked the neutral safety switch if it is an automatic or the clutch switch if it is a standard?

Clutch switch, crank power from ignition switch through the clutch switch when closed then to starter solenoid.

Could this be a bad wire?! Wirering gone bad through one of the connections?!

Yes Have you checked for crank power out of the ignition switch?

I have not! There is a wire that comes off the solenoid for the switch right?! By replacing this could that help the problem?!

I would start at the switch first, as it is the source voltage.

OK thank you for your time,I'll probly be back on after while!!!!!
