robertq1 , I you are sure the battery is good and charged 12.4V+, try this, remove the spark plug and try the key, if engine now spins very easily with the plug out, the engine most likely needs valves adjusted because there is a lack of decompression. If engine does not turn over quickly/freely the problem is in the starting circuit, bad/loose/corroded battery connections, weak faulty solenoid/starter, Engine damaged/seized. Trouble shooting links below may help. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
