I just bought a 75 4x4 chevy. today I went to start it and nothing. I wigled the steering column a bit and it cranked slightly then nothing and I could not for the life of me get it to do it again. also I had no power to the radio. I was wondering if the starter solenoid going out would cause this (has headers) as I have a brand new starter convieniently in my room. I was also thinking maybe a wire in the steering column was shorting out, or maybe the key cylinder went bad (can take the key out when not in the locked position ) also it was an auto diesel at one point and is now stick gas. whole truck specs in case curious; 75 k10 silverado 350 built slightly (has a little lope) 465/205 3/4 ton 10b front and 14bff rear (ratio will find out this weekend i hope if I can get it running again also think it has lockers) 6" lift (I think) and rolling on 38.5" swamper sx's front are at wear bar rear are new. exhaust sounds good thanks for any help.
