Assuming the battery has been load tested and is in top condition, look at the wiring connection at the solenoid to determine that that isnt the problem.

thanks for the quick reply Tricky. i forgot to mention i recently followed you guide to replace the dogbone so am sure that wiring is ok but i will check it out to be sure

since you previously said you bought a rebuilt starter,i would use the kit to go through your original one
