you changed the solenoid? did you hook it back up right? Just recheck all your wiring connections- make sure everything is correct- if it was "running fine" why did you do all that work? An old mechanic's maxim: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." This goes along with the physician's warning: "First, do no harm."

Main positive wire from battery to starter- check it with a test light- power to starter? Ignition switch- check that power is coming out when switched to start- check for power to solenoid- that is a simple, simple machine- if you can't figure it, take it to a good mechanic- he will be thrilled to get somethin' easy to work on- gravy-
