    Can you rotate the engine with a breaker bar?

    Solenoid sounds like it is working.

    I had a 99 Chevy 1500, different style, but the wire strap connecting the power after the solenoid, going directly into the starter itself, corroded away and severed the connection. Sounds like the same type of situation you have. Could try and repair it by soldering it, but it might leave you hanging when most needed, so just replace it.

    Do you have a fully charged battery? Didn't you test the old starter before getting a new one?

    make sure the ground on the intake is good, chevy grounded them to aluminum intakes and put a steal bolt through it. also try taking jumper cabels and ground the battery to the block and take the positive and clip it on the starter and try it! best of luck to you!
