who installed the motor?
did you do any testing for battery voltage at the starter solenoid when turning the key to start?
did you check the starter relay in engine compartment fuse box with a testlight or voltmeter?

are you sure the battery was fully charged before you installed it?
go back over the connections at the battery, the starter, and the ground, you should not be getting a large voltage drop.
what is the voltage reading at the battery and what is it when you try to start?
