Thanks for looking first of all.

5.7 4x4 auto trans.

Turn key and starter just clicks, it hits the flywheel and stops. It doesn't even try to turn it.
Did this a few times then it started a few times.

Replaced battery, it was tested and had a dead cell.
Started 3 times in a row with no problem then started just clicking again.
Replaced starter since I could not find any loose connections and it is doing the same thing, no starty.

Anything else to look for?
There is just a positive wire going to the solenoid and 1 small wire. I cleaned both before re-installing.
Battery connections seem good.

Thanks

Just tried jumping the starter by touching hot to ground and it does the same thing.
Kills everything too. Fuel pump runs then stops when I jump the starter out and runs again when I remove jumper.
:confused:

I have turned the flywheel also so motor isn't froze.
