Redskinner, even tho' I'm an Eagles fan, here are some additional thoughts that might be useful:
1. There is a connection (two wires together) that comes off the inside of the RH controls - they're kinda side-by-side wires. I think one is blue, one is brown (if they are still in their little casing, the casing should go on with the lead-end pointed down). Check that that's snug, on right, etc.
2. Check the small connectors that go onto the solenoid; One wire is black and yellow, one is red and yellow. Someone may say it doesn't matter which goes where (and it may not), but the black-yellow one should attach to the power lead side of the solenoid.
3. Undo the negative battery terminal and check the order of the washers on the starter motor pos lead. Should be: insulated washer, copper washer, power lead, nut, in that order. OOPS - ignore this; I see you bypassed the solenoid and it started. Next time I'll read for details.
Having been through the same scenario more times that I can count, I probably have another list in my head (given a little more time) of things to check. But see if any of the above makes a difference.
