1st....The snow is gone, Schnitzy.....................

Are you using the same solenoid on all the starters...may be your problem.

If it won't do anything when turning the key. you probably are not getting power to the ignition terminal of the solenoid.

Try putting to the bottom terminal of the starter, under the big one that you bolt the cable to. It should spin but not engage. Sounds like the solenoid to me.
