The solenoid is making a noise because of low voltage. That is likely caused by:

1. A weak battery (charge it & check it per tip # 49. Or get it load tested.)*

2. Dirty grounds/connections (remove the cables & clean the connections)

3. Bad cables or incorrect sized cables (replace them - see tip # 41)**

4. Bad ground between the starter & the block. (pull the starter away from the block & clean the mating area - see tip # 36)

* No matter what else you do, the battery must be fully charged. A 6 volt battery is fully charged at 6.32 volts, a 12 volt battery is fully charged at 12.65 volts. A fully charged battery cell will have a specific gravity of 1.265. At 5.95 volts, a 6v battery is dead; at 11.89 volts, a 12 v battery is dead.

** You can't see corrosion under the insulation.
