81' Power Ram 250 Custom SE won't turn over

My buddys truck one day just died on him on his way to work and he had tit towed back to his place, it was his second car so he never bothered with it until now, all plugs and wires are brand new, rotor and distributor cap too, but I know the problem isn't within those things to begin with because when you turn the key it makes like a noise it's like a cross between a clicking and a little puttering noise, the noise is deffinatly coming from the starter but we just replaced that today (and it was making same noise with old starter too). It's possible I could be mistaken on where the noise is coming from but i'm 80% sure it's coming from the starter. The battery is charged, although it isn't new, tried jumping it too and same thing, lights radio etc. all work, just doesn't want to turn over.

Any ideas?
