Are you sure that the battery is still viable? What you describe can also be caused by a battery's  'cold starting' amps falling.
Also, before you replace the starter, go over each battery contact; the two posts which may not be contacting well, the point at which the negative ground is attached to the body or engine, and the starter terminal. Any auto parts store will have a battery terminal cleaning brush; these have a male part for the inside of the clamps and a female brush for the battery posts.
If the solenoid (that's what is doing the clicking) is separate from the starter, use a wire brush to clean any terminals in the path from + terminal of the battery to the starter.
Starters draw ~ 120 to 200 amps when starting and any corrosion or loose terminals can cause the effect you have.
Removing the starter is not difficult; they are held only by 2 or 3 bolts to the bell housing of the transmission. BUT; before you deal with anything electrical on a car, disconnect the negative battery terminal first - always.  If a tool slips while removing the negative/ground post clamp, hitting some other part grounded to the chassis - no fire. If you remove the + terminal first, slipping can blow the tool away and severely damage the post.
Starters do fail but it is often the result of an oil leak that has worked its way into the starter and contaminated the commutator so the brushes no longer fully contact.

Can I time the engine without taking the bottom pulley off?? If so is the middle mark on the pulley TDC? (1994 Honda Civic DX 1.5liter single overhead cam)

You should remove the Crankshaft Pulley, because you have to remove the Timing Belt Cover to remove the belt, adjust tension, and line up the Timing Marks.

Here is the Service Guide for the Timing Belt on your 1994 Honda Civic 1.5l SOHC Engine:

Hi, I have a 1994 Honda Civic Ex and it won't start. It makes a clicking noise whenever I turn the key. This has been an ongoing problem when I get in the car I have to try several times before the car...

i have a 1992 honda civic hatchback with an 1995 single head vtec motor. the problem with my car is when i go and try to start the car it wont start up right away. instead it makes a clicking noise everytime i step on the clutch and turn the key. my honda is a 5 speed... sometimes it starts up right away but also sometimes it just seems like after 10 to 15 clicks the car still havent started yet. all the lights and everything else comes on fine from what i can see... what else can be the problem or anything that i can do very soon without spending any or alot of money yet???

Is the harmonic damper bolt turn counterclockwise to remove on a 1994 civic 4 cylinder

Yes. Many mechanics will remove the inspection cover on the trans, or take the starter out to be able to wedge a wood block or a breaker bar into the flywheel teeth to hold the engine still while breaking the bolt loose.

Of course, it helps to have someone helping.

good luck

The click you are hearing is the starter solenoid. This solenoid is a relay that applies 12 volts (at high current) to the starter motor. When you turn the ignition key you apply 12 volts ( at low current) to the solenoid. If jiggling the key solves the problem all of the time I would suspect the ignition key assembly.
If jiggling the key only works some of the time I would suspect the solenoid/starter assembly. For your info the solenoid/starter comes as a complete assembly, when you buy it.

Hope this helps

first check the battery, should have at least 10.43 volts under a load for about 10 to 15 seconds, are the cable ends clean and tight and corrosion free, is the ground cable connected to a good ground and is it frayed or partially cut anywhere. also how old is the battery, 4 or 5 years old, it may be time to change it. If all of the above is good, then its a good possibilty you need a new starter. two factors here, the age of the vehicle and the milage, if it is high. most japanese models, especially hondas will make a click at the starter and solenoid if the starter is defective, but only one click each time the key is turned. good luck and let me know if you have any other problems. thanks
