Question about Cars & Trucks
On vehicles this old, use a screwdriver with an insulated handle to arc or ground the two wires located on the smaller cylindrical 'bendix' attached to the starter. It can also be tested after removal with jumpercables too. If you take the vehicle or the starter to the closest auto parts store, they'll check it for you complimentary.

There should be one large stud that the batter positive cable goes to. There should be a small stud marked with the letter, it gets the wire from the ignition switch which is usally green. If there is a small stud marked R it is usally left vacant but is sometimes used as a coil feed. There may be sevaral red wires or other colors which are fusible links and go on the battery term of the starter. Place the battery cable on the stud first and these on the top of it.

If not, try this. Turn the key to on. Security light blinking? If yes, let it blink for 10 minutes + it will stop blinking. Remove key, then insert key and start car. Computers went bad on these often.
