SOURCE: it won't start, it just clicks??
It could be a lose or corroded concision , but before getting to deep in to it I would pull the spark plugs and give it a shot of oil wd/40 in the cylinder's, and crank it over with out the spark plugs in especially if it sat for a wile where it could have been damp. make sure the new battery is charged if still wont crank over then it is likely the starter could be bad you can check that with a amp. draw test . hope this give you what you need to know , let us know if this Helped Thank You.

You need a test light on the starter terminal when it won't start. Attempt the start and if the light comes on, but the motor doesn't, the motor is defective. In that case, remove the starter from the engine and inspect each brush located at the opposite end from the drive for excess wear or weak spring tension that holds the brush in place. Don't rotate the brush 180 degrees when replaced. I don't know if rebuild kits are available--check with a dealer. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: think its a bad starter
I can tell you how to remove the starter, and it is rebuildable, but it doesnt SOUND like a bad starter. THE FIRST thing I would do is check all the battery cable connections. Loosen and retighten them and see if that helps.

Hi and welcome to the site,
Initially, have the battery load tested.
Offhand, temporarily jumper the 2 big terminals of the starter relay. If the starter motor spins, then a faulty starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.
If even jumping the 2 terminals, the starter motor would not turn, either:
Good luck and thank you for asking.
