Default Starting issue

So I replaced all the gaskgask on my subaru, and made it to putting everything back in the car. I gohave to turn it on and there is a bunch of fast clicks. Sounds like the starter is trying I think.
Question 1. How many connections are for the starter.

Question 2. Would any other connections cause this issue?

Question 3. How man cracking amps do you need on a battery?

Sounds like a dead/low battery, either charge it up or jump start it.

There are 3 connections for the starter.
Big red wire from the battery is main feed.
Small wire is part of themstarter circuit.
Bolt or nut that holds the starter to the trans is the ground.

The clicking means there is enough voltage to pull the starter solenoid in (small wire) but not enough to hold it in or spin the starter motor.
