Now, it has done this a couple of times before, but usually if I switch it on and off a couple of times, she'll decide to start. Not this time. Just one single click, not a machine gun clicking, from the starter. Tried whacking it with a BFH, no go.
Ideas on my best course of action? Is this a solenoid? bad starter?

you can jump the starter by running a wire to the tab on the back. i like to run a push-button start switch to the terminal

Hmm, I could try that.

you can just jump a wire from under the hood to verify the starter still works before you do all that wiring.
go from the fuse panel to the switch, and bring the wire from the switch thru the speedo or clutch cable grommet(or thru the steering shaft, but tie it up so it doesnt get twisted with the steering shaft

Still get the single click. Bad solenoid or starter?

Mick, I also shot you an E-mail to see if you had an extra starter I could buy. Never hurts to have a backup.
At least the starters on Soobs are super easy to get at. Beats trying to pry the starter out from behind the header on my Fairmont!
And of course, now that I have repairs to do, we're finally getting snow tonight. Oh well, guess I'll play in Eyesore instead.
