Does the new starter crank the engine? If it does then start looking for an ignition issue (no spark) like an old distributor cap, rotor, coil, etc. then move on to diagnosing if it is getting fuel and air. If the engine does not crank, then look to the battery or wiring between the battery and the new starter motor.
