1979 Chevrolet Silverado Repair Question
Asked on June 4, 2012
What's wrong with my starter and battery?
I have a 1979 k10 chevy. When I first got it i had to change the starter and the flywheel because it was the wrong starter for the truck an ate the flywheel to shit. I got a new starter from the parts store. I tried Putin shims on it. I've tryed everything. Now here recently when I tryed turning the key over the nothins happening and the batter cables are plugged in. It's a brand new battery. And it's charged because when I went to plug the cables in. It was shooting sparks at me. could anyone help me?

check with a test light at the starter and see if the light is as bright as it is at the battery. you may have a bad cable. there are also fusible links connected to the starter. alot of times those burn up and truck won't start. they are available at auto parts stores. there are a couple and you should be able to see them, they will have to be reconnected to the wire they are connected to.
