new starter not starting

ok heres what i got. 71 chevelle, 350, 700r4, i am just finishing a complete rebuild of the motor. i bought a brand new starter and when i hooked up the wires and tried starting the car nothing happens.there is absolutley nothing going on with the starter no noises no clicking nothing. i have 12 volts at the starter from the battery. i am not getting a 12 volt signal on the S connection when i turn the key to start. also when i turn the key to start all my electrical components stay energized, they dont cut out when i turn the key. any ideas?? thanks guys

Re: new starter not starting

See if you have 12 volts on the neutral safety switch as you turn the key.
