brought it home and replaced spark plugs
and oil sending unit because oil was
dripping on spark plugs and checked out
coil pack housing for cracks  and put it

Check all your connections again, if battery terminals and connections are good try a voltage drop test to the starter. Can also check main fuse and starter relay.
