Is it a steel fuel line? Has the positive battery cable rubbed through and shorting?
Before replacing the starter, either have a helper turn the key to the start position while you check for power to the smaller wire at the starter. If you are getting 12+ volts, the starter is most likely bad. However, you could remove the starter and have it bench tested at a parts store. Most do it for free.
