If the starter solenoid clicks, but does not close the solenoid and turn the starter, the voltage is dropping to the solenoid. Try a jumper wire mirroring the wire from keyswitch to the start terminal on the solenoid and see if a new wire is the answer. Old wire may not be carrying enough voltage/amps to engage the solenoid.
