It could also be the Crank Position Sensor. It is mounted on the flywheel cover and if it gets contaminated with dust from the clutch it can stop the engine from starting. It confuses the average guy as it looks like either a fuel or ignition problem. It is held in position with two bolts. Might be awkward to get to. Hope this helps.

It sounds like your not getting a connection through the terminals on the battery. Try pulling them off and cleaning them and see if it makes a difference. It could also be the ground connection on the other end from the battery. There should be at least two + battery leads coming off of the battery. One goes to the starter solenoid. The other should go to ...
