So i replaced the points. condenser, spark plugs, cap, everything for ignition and it was working great. the starter went out. so i ordered a new one and put it in. it didn't want to start after either. so i replaced the solenoid. that didn't work. then i just replaced the wires and connectors today. and it still doesn't want to turn over. i even used a charger with a 200 amp jump start and it didn't work. i get the Click from the solenoid then the starter Clicks, then it does nothing. Please help. i dont know any other things i can replace. the battery maybe??

I hope you got this sorted out by now.
sorry for the delay getting your profile approved.
That is why no one answered or saw your post.
 
All set now.
Still the same admin/moderator REGUL8R just needed a 2nd account for more picture space.

Definitely need to check the basics first.
Grounds, connections, etc....
At the starter, does it sound like it is kicking the gear out or just simple click?
Just for giggles and quick check, can you turn the engine over by hand? worse case if you cannot.....
May want to pull the starter and have it tested.
