I would check to see if you are getting 12 volts at the starter. You should have one wire coming from the ignition that gets system voltage when you turn the key to the start position. You'll also have one from the battery that will be hot all the time.

does the slave cylinder have a bleeder? it should. auto parts stores sell hand-operated vacuum pumps for bleeding brakes. i have used mine to pull fluid through clutch hydraulics to get enough pressure to commence the regular bleeding process. hope this helps.

The ign switch has a wire that goes to the small post on the starter.. if this wire is not connected the starter will not turn the engine.. likewise.. if your ign switch is not sending a electric to this post same problem.. You might also have a burnt "Fuseable Link".. or a bad ign switch.. yoiu can try jumping across the large battery cable connection and the small starter post.. this will tell you the problem is not in the starter..block the wheels. e brake on and truck in Park or nutural.. another thing there might be a nutural saftey switch if its an automatic.. or a clutch switch if its a manual trans.. I do not think your truck has a starter relay.. do not know what is clicking.. Post a comment here when you find out what is wrong.. it helps everyone..

Check everything that is connected to a vacuum line, check the CAT and the injectors and last run a compression test.

you need to bend them at the correct angle. It's a pain but it can be done.

I would start with the basics, plugs wires, cap and rotor button. Is you check engine light on or flashing? Your truck would be OBD1 so there should be an oblong plug under the dash. It will have 2 rows of connectors and 2 of them will be marked A and B. Use a jumper wire between these, A and B. Your check engine light will flash a series of codes in long and short flashs. A long one is 10 and a short one is 1. It will flash ech code 3 times and start and end with 12, so you will get 12,12,12,?,?,?,12,12,12. This may help to get you pointed in the proper direction. When you have them, let me know or type in "GM OBD1 trouble codes" into your computer. There are dozens of free sites to give you a read out. Hope this helps.
