That is a great idea, I will try that in the morning. I have to get it running this weekend!
On the same channel, but different tune, how about that heavy positive wire that goes from the battery straight to the starter; it's gotta be in good condition too. I agree gotta have a good ground, and gotta have a good positive supply TO the starter, too.Use a jumper cable and ground the negative battery terminal to the engine or frame. On my 98 the negative battery cable was internally corroded and I had no lights or anything either.
