why would I be getting continuity between terminal post on starter and ground. All wires are disconnected. Starter works fine but I'm having a charging problem on a restoration project, and while trying to trace found this short. Believe it might have something to do with it.

which terminal post are you touching? If you are touching the one on the starter switch, you shouldn't have continunity. ( 1 wire to ground and the other on the post). However if you are touching the post that is part of the starter, you will have continunity. One end of the coil in the starter is connected to that post and the other end is connected to ground, making a completed circuit, hence continunity. Bob

Checking post on the switch. I dont get it dont get a spark when hooking up the battery. But when I remove the negative cable from the post and run a test light between them It lights. Wire from the starter to the dash is disconnected.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances.
