Make sure fuses are making contact with the fuse clips.  Also, if the starter is
easy to pull out you could check it by putting a set of jumper cables to it and
see if it spins.  I have had a lot of starters burn out.  In fact, if it can
happen it seems to have happened to me.  Are the batts putting out juice.
Just some random thoughts.
