Broken 92 joining the team!

This jeep is almost as old as me! Hello all, this is my first post. I have more questions than answers right now, but that will change in time.

I bought myself a 92 4 cylinder standard, had some transmission issues but fixed them, and then had a perfectly running jeep! The only problem is now it wont start. It worked great for about two weeks after I got the master cylinder replaced. When I turn the key the lights turn on and I can hear the solenoid click but the starter does not engage. I took out and tested both the starter and alternator.

-check engine light
-new battery
-new spark plugs
-starter tested and works
-alternator tested and works
-starts when jumped

I'm not sure what could be wrong with my jeep. I could not get the engine light checked, shops nearby cannot check them for cars this old apparently. I've read on other forums that it could be the voltage regulator, which is often inside the alternator. I checked behind the battery as well, could not find anything. Im not sure what the next step is, I really want to get this beast running.

Any advice?
