Starter clicking
by: Dave

Probably the starter solenoid is bad since it starts with the screw driver jumping the terminals. NAPA can get you the parts they have catalogs for industrial equipment. I got an alternator from them for mine

So, you changed the starter and/or the starter solenoid?

Sounds like solenoid or possibly poor connection(s) to battery or starter.
