i know it isnt a camaro,but my 84 cutlass with 400 chevy acted up again. i made this post in engine and drivetrain on accident, s didnt get any replies. its a long one. Here it goes, strted fine yesterday morning, my power steering belt was squeling so, i shut it off to adjust it. Wen to start it again, and i was greeted to smoke coming off wires to starter. My solenoid wire is fine. I suspected it was a burntwire from hitting exhaust manifold so i cut out a part that looked bad, wires were showing from below fusible link, and wires got real soft. still smoking, so got a different starter and placed it on air cleaner, hooked up everything, smoke, it only smokes on the wire that goes from big positive post of starter to fusebox. Then i cut out teh fusible link and wired to starter, evrything works fine until key is on ignition, then it smokes, and i lose all power, headlights still work though. do you think the wire burned, then fried fusble link, now without fusible link, it just smokes my wire? thansk this sucks, i need to fix it bymonday, it is a 16 guage fusble link.
