Need help with starting issue

My 1985 380SL was in storage all winter like it has been each year since I bought it about 5 years ago. This month I put the battery back in and tried to turn it over. Everything seemed to be in order, but the starter would not spin the engine. I replaced the starter and also bought a bought a Noco jumper pack. I have also tried conventional jumper cables. I donít know what to try next. Any ideas?

no start

did you check the neutral safety switch? maybe try putting it in neutral to see if that works. also try holding the key in the start position and move the shifter in and out of neutral.
