For the initial problem it could be a poor ground circuit connection. Ensure the ground cable from battery to trasmission is tight and secure. Clean the battery terminals and retighten them.
Don't be surprised if the rebuilt is the one causing the new problem.
Disconnect the starter solenoid wire and get someone to turn the ignition switch to crank position while you test the wire for battery voltage.
Use a remote wire to apply battery voltage to the starter solenoid to test if the starter works.
