Ok guys I tried both of your suggestions. The only time I got any type of electrical sound was when I accidentally touch the main battery wire to the small prong on the solenoid. You coukd just hear the solenoid kick. I did this when I was swamping sides.
I swamped sides of batt wire and starter wire and got nothing

Pull the starter side cable off the solenoid. Now take that and touch the battery side with it.. If it turns over when you do that then you have a bad new solenoid. If it does not turn over check starter ground and if that does not fix it take the starter to an auto parts store and have it checked it maybe bad

First thing was that I bought a new (bad) solenoid
Then I called OLD and he helped me diagnose some small electrical issues. I was able to get the starter to hit and it acted like it was in a bind. I pulled started and confirmed that it was working.
The next thing I tried was turning over the motor manually with the plugs out. I was able to turn it over so far in one direction before it stopped, same with the other direction. I new this was not right so I kept working it by turning the motor over by grabbing the fan.
Finally a bunch of old gunk shot out of #3 plug and it began to spin freely! Bolt starter and carb up and after adjusting on carb it hit and ran.
