Check the starter again. Even if it was rebuilt, it may have been sitting on a shelf for a long time. If the starter functions during a bench test, make sure it was properly installed (may need shims). Also make sure the engine crankshaft turns, you can use a socket on the front bolt of the crankshaft to make sure the engine can turn over.
