Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
With the new battery installed does the starter engage to crank over the engine at a normal speed when it did start in the past or is it turning over slow or not turning over at all?
Let me know, thanks, Pete.
Do you hear any clicking or noises from the starter area at all now when you try and start it?
Do you have a test light or multi meter to test electrical with at all?
When it ran last was it running properly with no engine noises or power issues?
It sounds like the starter has failed which the cold can cause with a weak starter that was already ready to fail.Locate the large power wire at the starter, it should have at or near 12 volts DC at all times key on or off.Hook the meter or test light to a ground source to test this power.
If it is good then locate the smaller wire that connects to a separate connection/post on the starter and sees if it has at or near 12 volts DC/power when someone is holding the key in the starting position.
If both wires have power then the starter itself needs to be replaced.

Is your solenoid separate from the starter on this engine.Unfortunately my info doesnt show if it is for sure.
Let me know,thanks Pete
O.k., I see thank you for that.
Try tapping on the starter while someone tries to start it.If it tries to start or turns over any faster when this is done this is the motor at fault.Usually, the solenoid will click when its working and the motor is the cause.
