New Mean Green starter won't turn Jeep over??

Just installed a Mean Green starter on my 74 CJ5, and all I get when I turn the key is a click, checked my wiring ( I have a dedicated ground to one of the starter mounting bolts and the pos wire is going from the solenoid to the starter) new cables.
My old starter fires the jeep up with no problem, could I have a bad starter out of the box and how would I test it?

Thanks for any input.

To test......Put old starter back in an see if she starts.
Those MG starters ain't worth it IMHO.

Bad engine ground I would guess if the starter is good.

does the starter have 2 post on it if it does jumper the 2 together I had to do it with my power master starter

Removed the jumper wire when I installed it, had to reinstall jumper.
