My 90SC has been sitting for a year or so. When I parked it the alternator was starting to go. This weekend I installed a new one and put a fresh battery (fully charged) in. I have aux power (door lights, warning lamps, etc..) but when I go to start it the engine won't turn. I can hear the solenoid clicking and all the bells and whistles come on but other than that....nothing.
Does anyone have any ideas of what I should be checking...thx

Try jumping the solenoid and see if she turns over.....

Check the small solenoid wire connection on the starter itself. If it loses contact it'll have your symptoms. It's a slip on spade lug and they come loose. I've had that problem before.

Thanks guys I'll give that a try!
Seems like I should be concentrating on the solenoid and starter area.
