Does all the accessories work with the ignition on. If so I would make sure your getting power to solenoid. If you are the starter is suspect.

did all the wires get hooked up to the selenoid, battery is hooked up, good cables on the battery and not one of those bad clamp on battery terminals with a bunch of ring connectors cobbled on it. first question a good electronics guy usually asks is IS it plugged in and the switch turned ON,
