Thanks for the information.
As far as I know this is a stock L98 engine.
I am going to do the ground wire first and evaluate results.
If car does not start, then I will try bumping starter housing with a rubber hammer, if there is something wrong with the brushes, I have seen in the past, that this would confirm poor contact. I understand that this style of starter may have porcelain guides and that bumping housing is not recommended, but at this point I am afraid to take the car anywhere or worse be stuck in traffic. So I will try all tests to define and correct this problem.
If I wanted to install a new higher torque starter, (just for piece of mind), how would I go about finding one (NAPA, a speed shop, Midstate Corvette, Ecklars)?
