I have replaced the starter with a new one and the starting seoind --
have tested the battery and have clean good cables ---live in tulsa ok and no rust proeblem -- the starter turns the engine about 6 inches and then quits -- pulled the plugs and can spin it with a drill -- pulled into the drive way running and went to use it a week later and ran into this problem -- crank angle or fuel reg problem? I am 70 and been fixing my cars since I was 14 --- this has me baffled
needing a helping hand please

Ok, the little tickle wire, it drops out the voltage? If it does, the ignition switch may have failed
