CAR WONT CRANK. DASH LIGHTS AND FUEL PUMP TURN ON.

My 1998 Nissan 200sx wouldn't turn over. I bridged the gap on the solenoid with a screw driver and the starter motor engaged but didn't engage the engine itself. I figured I had a faulty starter. I replaced the starter and the solenoid together because it seemed like a good idea. I installed the new assembly and still the car wont crank.

Any idea of what it might be?

In the last year I also replaced the alternator and the distributor.

How would I go about doing that? Could it be something else beside a default connection? Aloha
