Here's how I'd do it.

Use a volt meter and make sure you are getting 12v at the starter (large cable from the battery) If no 12v.... clean or replace battery cable.

If you are getting 12v at the starter..... make sure it's in park and use a screw driver and jump across the large pos stud on the starter and the smaller one marked "S" you should hear a metallic click and the starter should turn the engine over, If no click or spin ...... remove the starter and take it to a auto parts store for testing.

If it spins, but doesn't turn the engine over..... it's probably the bendix/solenoid
