    i had a bad ground and i took a set of jumper cables,hooked one to the neg on the battery and the other to the hood spring.then i hooked the other side of the cables to the one already on the neg side of the battery and that ones mate to the frame. and she turned over:D . so i disconnected the frame cables and she still turned over,so it was easy to know i had a bad body ground.i almost baught a new starter.:rolleyes:
