I would vote alternator issue but clean your connections first. Does it just click once? You should probably try giving the starter and solenoid a good whack with a soft mallet. I'm betting something is stuck.

Insure the battery is charged.
Insure the battery is grounded to both the frame and engine.
check for voltage at both sides of the solenoid when it is engaged. should be a solid 12V or more with the starter inoperative.
Check for voltage at the starter. If you have a voltage drop, you will need to check the cable.
If all of the above are good, you may want to check the brushes on the starter or a jammed Bendix drive.

Will motor turn over by hand? If it will not remove belt and see if it will turn over by hand.

I highly recommend checking, cleaning/scrubbing/wire brushing and torquing down connections from battery to starter and all your grounds. I replaced my starter earlier this and had a very similar issue. After cleaning the shiznit outta the connections my problem was solved. Definitely worth a shot.

Try jumping it and then disconnect the battery while its running. If it dies then alternator. If it stays running then check solenoid starter etc.
