Default no start!!

I have a 93 diesel D-250 Love the truck, but recently after I drive for a short or long distance and turn the truck off, it will not start again for about 1/2 to 1 hour. I have lights, radio, lots of battery, but the starter solenoid doesn't engage. The starter isn't hot to the touch when I turn the motor off, any ideas out there?

Have you applied the hammer to the starter when it won't start? And/or have you replaced the starter?

That's the first try, I'll do the hammer trick.....then replace the starter. Good thing I'm a carpenter......I got lots of those.
