Did you change the starter bushing? Used the standard transmission starter and not the automatic? Have the wires hooked up to the right side? If yes then you may need a starter relay or a new ignition switch. You can test that by jumping the starter with a screw driver. If the starter turns the motor over but it won't start then make sure all the wires are hooked up to the battery and the fuses are good.
