      you probably screwed up the flywheel so now the starter isnt grabbing it and is not able to crank/ turn over the engine.

      Does the starter crank the engine, or does nothing happen when you turn the key?

      Pull the starter, inspect & bench test. Inspect the flywheel.

      Check the starter solenoid. Is the battery good?

      starter spins out side the bell house,put it back just clicks, switch relay number 6, cranked crank pulley, 360 degrees, so engine is fine, checked fuel switch cut off, it up, tried in netruel and went thro the gears from park to 2 and back, tried by passing the start by using screw drive at the fender seliond, checked all cables and grounds,from battery, tighted battary connects so far just a click, im out of ideas

      Did you test the starter when it was out by using jumper cables from the battery? If you did, I still say it is the fender solenoid, you need to use a jumper cable from the battery terminal to the starter cable.
      If you take the starter to AUTO ZONE they test for free.
