Getting power but won't turnover, no clicking, no nothing. I'm getting power and lights and tried my battery pack but still nothing.

Did you give the solenoid on starter a tap with a hammer? Sometimes sitting that long, if not replaced, they can just get a little stuck.

Does the engine turn by hand?

Once she turns on her own with the starter, if still no start, then start the air, fuel, spark trouble shooting that we all love.

Good luck.

Cheers

Make sure you have installed the engine ground wire from the coil area to the block properly.

Are the 16 and 50 wires connecting to the starter solenoid reversed? If so get nothing.

I helped with the rebuild, some things still not attached, I didnít think that ground from coil bracket to block would be an issue?

Absolutely will cause the issue. On NA cars I've seen the clutch cable melt and snap when trying to start the motor with this ground disconnected.
