Welcome to the forum!

Does the motor crank over with the electric starter or no? If not, make sure your hot and ground cables are clean with good connections at each end. If the starter motor still won't run it probably needs brushes in it at a minimum. Should take it apart and look at it before ordering a kit though, in case its fried.

Yeah I would say if the solenoid is new and the battery is good then it would be your starter.

Got same problem on my '86 350. Had power to starter and solenoid click but won't turn on starter and not able to start with kick start, not verify if spark ignite when kicking but this is not the main issue. I take starter appart ans seem to need a new brush on positive side.
