What is it doing that makes you think it may be bad?

A lot of times the trouble is just dirty connections, or a sticky bendix.

You can have it tested at any good local starter shop.

The battery is fully charged (about 2 months old) as I have tested it with my own tester. I just installed new cables today (bought from this web site), I have checked all of my grounds and see no problem there, and now all I get is a "click-click-
click". Prior to installing the new cables (I had previously put new ones on I bought from a local parts store) and had a lot of trouble getting good cranking power.

The click can be caused by a few problems. #1 a weak battery or a bad battery. A bad solenoid or a bad starter. To test the starter you can jumper around the solenoid as in the 2 bog posts make sure it is out of gear if you do that. If it is a bad solenoid the starter should spin if a bad starter you should get sparks but no engine turn over and same with a weak battery

Make sure you have a good ground thru the mounting surface to the block. Sand it so there is metal to metal and no rust or paint. That is where the grounding point is. You can jump the starter with a battery and cables ( Make sure it is out of gear) by touching one jumper to the big stud on the top front of the starter and ground the other cable to the frame. Make sure it is out of gear.. It should turn the starter. Make sure it is out of gear. It can run over you!! Don't ask me how I know. Good luck. DON TX
