That could be your problem. If a battery has lost it's ampage but holds its volts you will get no cranking power. Check brightness of headlights, or try jump starting it off something else :)

Do not bridge the battery live on the starter to the starter solenoid spade terminal that the wire normally goes on to test it, and also do not put a female spade terminal on a length of wire to aforementioned terminal and via a push switch or similar to battery to enable you to test / eliminate it being the wiring or starter. Also do not secure and bench test the solenoid of the removed starter to see if you removed a good one.
