Truck won't start

Ok guys here's the deal I have a 94 model that won't start. All it does when you turn the key over is click. The truck has 2 new batteries a new cam sensor, a new solenoid, and a new glow plug relay. Upon further inspection all wires seem to be properly attched to the starter. I have even tried to short across the starter but had no luck. The truck will not crank, it just clicks. I am at my wits end, any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

Replace Starter, that is the first thing that comes to mind.

If you've tried everything else - definately at least take the starter off and take it to be tested...

Ok in the back of my mind thats what I've been thinking. Question, it's a 5 speed so by pull or roll starting it should fire up if it's just the starter thats bad right?

I had the same problem and thought it was my starter also. What mine ended up being was a bad connection on the starter. The 12or 14 Gauge wire that comes down from the soleniod on the fender, played around with it, wiggled it and my truck cranks over just fine. I guess i would double check both the solenoids and connections before i replace the starter, cuz i know those arent cheap

Can you pull or push start your truck. Yes but it is not easy to do.

I also aggree with the little wire but you said you checked the wiring and replaced the solenoids so I am going with the starter.

Well I sounded like a dummy asking that question. I know you can roll or pull or push standards and get them started. My question is: if the truck won't start by being pulled does that mean it's something other than the starter? I think it means it something else but I don't know what.

Wen all else fails : Remove starter et batt charger,plug it in than hook the black lead to the case of the starter, touch hte hot or red lead to the BIG post on the solanoid use a screwdriver and make a contact from the large post to hte small one it should spin over and the gear should get "TOSSED" toward the rear of the shaft. Ohter thing that could b happening is the "BENDIX GEAR is stuck on the flywheel / TC ring gear..... Bill........

Have you tried to crank it over by hand. It will not be easy but it can be done. Socket and ratchet on the crank pulley. See if the engine is locked up, or maybe something with the clutch is locking it up. I would remove the starter take it to an autoparts store and have it benched tested. If it works during the bench test then most likely there is something locking up the fly wheel.
