Double check all your battery connections and the frame and motor negative battery connections. Should be clean and tight. If all looks good and battery fully charged it's probably your starter has went bad. Sometimes lightly tapping on the starter with a hammer or wrench while key is turned to the start position will make these Chevy starters turn over. If the tapping works replace the starter it's bad.
