"Make sure the Ground lead attachment point is clean and you should fit a longer lead and attach it to one of the bolts close to the starter...John(UK)...firstname.lastname@example.org "
Made all the difference. Starts like a champ!! Ground cable may have been bad inside. I bought a longer cable and sconnescted it to one of the bolts in the housing. Thank you and everyone else too. The repairman replaced the starter post also. But it was the ground that made it not start.
