Was that a rebuilt starter or a "good" used one? Test the yellow wire at the starter, and see if you're getting power that far. If so, make sure the connection to the solenoid post is good.
If not, pull the plastic cover off the console and see if you've got power through the switch. The ignition switch turns the shaft that turns the electrical switch through a gear, not directly, so the wires are accessible once you remove the console cover. The heavy gray wire at the switch is the power in.
If you get power through the switch, but not down at the starter, it might be that the plug under the dash has lost contact. It's a bear to get at, as it's behind the long duct that runs from the center to the vents on either side of the dash. It can be difficult to get out. Seems to me you have to take off the ducts that run down the console, as they plug into the bottom off the one that runs across, and have to be out of the way before you can drop the long one down.
