Test the battery and make sure its cleaned and properly tightened if okay, posssible causes could be ignition switch, clutch interlock relay, clutch switch and starter itself

You can check the battery yourself. How did you get the car to your apartments? What are the miles/ was it running when you bought it? For $500 it probably had something wrong with it more than just a battey.

P.S. Those are both for 92. I am not sure they will go in easily, but when I typed in 93 they are the only ones to show up.

Both those engines come with a 3 year unlimited mile warrenty and free shipping, not sure about core charge. Just find out w=how much a mech would charge to put it in, and if the two years are easily compatable. 500 for car, 1000 for engine and 500 to install gives you a car at 2000 with 3 year warrenty on block. Manuel trans ussually last a long long time
