Look at the starter solenoid. There will be a single small post, that is the switch terminal. The wire from the keyswitch for start, has to go there. Use a short jumper wire to test the solenoid, touch the battery post to this small post, engine should crank. If not , the solenoid is bad! If it does start, get a test light or voltmeter and check the wire at the solenoid, does it have 12 volts when key is turned to start? It has to for starter solenoid to engage the starter. If no voltage, follow the wire back to the key switch and see if there is voltage at the switch. Use wire color to determine which wire it is.

My direction was to go from battery post on the solenoid to the switch terminal, this is the same connection the key switch makes. Nothing else! Did you have key switch on? If not, engine is not going to start.
