Re: Starter juice
I'd advise you to stay away from using a meter to measure amps. There are two many things that can go wrong using amps.
Just measure the voltage drop between the solenoid wire and the battery (+) while a helper cranks it over. You should see minimal voltage (0.05 or less). Do the same test on the ground (motor shell) to battery (-) with a helper cranking. If you see more then look at ingnitions switches, connectors (firewall connector, ignition switch connectors), etc.
