Question about Cars & Trucks
Old starter quit engaging, would click like solenoid was out. Replaced starter and solenoid , still will not engage to turn over. I've bypassed all safety switches, no help. Take starter back off motor and ground to frame, bendix spins and stays out just fine. Motor turns over very freely, no bind. I'm running out of things to try.

The click you hear is the starter relay. Check for continuity thru relay with battery negative cable disconnected and switch in start position. If no continuity, it probably has burned contacts. Sometimes these can be taken apart and contacts filed/sanded cleaned.

Testimonial: "Good quick answer to my question. Will follow suggestion."
It sounds like the small tickler wires may be reversed to the Solenoid.
If no success, call Itasca and ask if there were any changes for this Solenoid. There are several types of Solenoid with the grounding being the major internal difference. Most likely your wires are switched.
