If you get a click with the start button, it suggests that you are completing the starter circuit but have too much resistance to to get the 6 volts to the starter.
What size are your battery cables? They should be as big around as your thumb. If they are the size of your little finger, that might be part of your problem.
Clean contacts everywhere are important. The starter case must have a good ground to the engine block.
