Sounds as if not enough current is reaching the starter solenoid to successfully throw it. The Townsendimports web site suggests a cheap booster trick for sluggish solenoids, running a Ford starter solenoid (as used almost forever on F150s, available at most car parts stores cheap), mounted externally on a wheel well somewhere, to provide a nice fat boost to the current to the actual solenoid on your starter, with fat wiring.
Or, get ready as Zig implies to change your starter some day soon.
