ok, got everything back together, and still the same thing.....
cleaned base of starter and mount point for a good ground.... getting power to starter, turn key and get power to wire entering starter, could not test the small wire, it threw sparks at me when I tried...... and wife got pissed at me..... While releaving stress by pounding on the starter, I was charging the batterys just because. For giggles, I tryied, and it tryed to start, it cranked very slow like batteries are dead, but they charged over might, and for about 45 minutes while I put them in to test the starter. On the load test last night, they did not fall below 11 volts, so we know the batteries are good. I am begining to think the starter is fried, and do not have the $200 for the starter.
Well, off to bed now, and debating about sell the truck, already tired of working on it. I bought a diesel for reliablity and towing, not to work on everyday......
Looking for a FORD.
