Need more information.
IE:
Does it have power??
Does it 'growl'??
Does the solenoid 'click'??
Did you clean or otherwise work on the starter while it was out??

I have an '83, have had starter problems, and think I might be somewhat helpful. Check the above, first.

Under it's different..battery at 10V or more while starting? did the positive stud on the starter get moved while tightening up the cable..if so = broken tab and no starter, hydro locked engine?, bad ground on battery or bad cable to ground.

try jumping it from a car battery..with the plugs out and stop switch on off..if gas in cylinder it will shoot out and if there is a spark..BIG BOOM!!!! so stop switch on off!!!!
