I've seen so many starter problems that ended up actually being connection problems. I'd take a car jumper cabe set, connect - to battery and starter cas bolt, + to battery and touch the starter power feed bolt. That will let you know if it is starter or wiring/solenoid. As long as the battery is good, of course.
