Okay. I'm definitely checking the ground. Hard to believe that's a capillary, I could swear it was wire, and the PO has that thing bundled up and zip tied to the point that a liquid could barely flow. It's gotta be kinked. Anyway, I had the starter off and it all looked pretty clean, but I could take it off again and clean it. Step one is battery is coming out, I'm running new ground wires to the guages and taking out some of the rigged wiring to lights, etc. While in there I'll take off the main ground and clean it. Getting rid of that resistor in the coil circuit.

I really don't get the comments on the starter switch. The stock switch is not being used. It was swapped for a ford-type remote solenoid during the 12v conversion. Are the comments pertaining to the original switch? I don't know of any way to adjust the Ford switch.

I was referring to the OEM starter circuit not some sort of farmerized solenoid operated starter ciruit. I flunked Mindreading 101!

Don"t get rid of the resistor unless you are sure you have a real 12v coil(3.2 ohms primary resistance in the coil). If your coil resistance is ~1.6 ohms, you"ll need the resistor with a 12v system.
