lots of clicking but not turning over

ok so I brought the notchback out of storage and I changed the OX sensor a week ago and gave it a twist car started fine, I ran if for a couple min and shut it off..next day the car just cranked and wouldnt start. Same day it stopped cranking all together so I put in a starter off a known good car..Now all I get is a clicking, nonstop when I try to start it..Battery is charged(and I put the battery charger on it while I crank it)..Replaced the positive cable..checked all the grounds, nothing all it does is click???pleae help im at the end of my rope...

Well, if you are certain that both the starter and the battery are good, then I would try and do the following. Try and start the car from the starter not the ignition key. If it still clicks, then I would do one of 2 things. 1) Double check the starter. 2) Try an ascertain whether or not the motor has seized up on you...

Good luck...

Use a voltmeter to see what the voltage is the the solenoid. Also try gently tapping the solenoid and the starter with a rubber hammer.
