Were there any shims on it when you removed it? Are all wires / battery terminals tight and clean? Try this test. Have a helper turn the key to the start position while you check for voltage to the smaller wire on the starter. You should have 12v. If you do, then most likely the starter is bad. If you don't, then you need to trace the power supply to locate where it is lost.
