    I had the battery on charge the entire night and tried to start it this morning but no luck.

    Still doing the same thing. Key turns and there is a clicking sound which sounds to me like its a relay or something. Starter didnt even turn though.

To me that sounds a starter trying to engage, first my sure you have good battery volts. After that moment have a second person turn the key while you tap on the starter solenoid not the starter housing to see if it will turn over.

My mr2 86 doesn't crank

Make sure you have a good battery/connections. Make sure you have power down to the starter on the B+ terminal if not replace faulty wire or clean/dirty connectionson ensure connections are tight. While someone turns the key make sure you have power in the S terminal. If power make sure the engine isn't locked up and replace the starter. If no power you may have an issue with the ignition switch circuit (stitch, wiring, fuses....)

Ringing under hard accel between 3600-4200rpms on 1986 MR2???

It could be engine detonation or knock. If so it is terribly damaging to the engine and must be totally avoided. Try using premium unleaded petrol for a trial, Or add some "ignition control additive" or ad some Methyl Benzene to the fuel. The anti knock sensor should control this but not all cars had these, or yours may have failed.
