What he left out.....Rubicrawler said:Could be you have a bad cable going from the battery to the starter. Does your positive cable get really hot? I had the same problem and fixed it by installing a Ford solenoid on the firewall and bypassing the solenoid on the starter. I also replaced the cables with new, heavy gauge cables. No more problems

"I dicked around with it for two weeks, this really smart guy I know recommended the Ford Solenoid. I blew him off, figured what the hell does he know. Spent another two weeks messing with it, installed a new motor, transmission, axles and bunch of other sheet. Then my wife reminded me what the smart guy said about the solenoid. So down I went, bought the 10 dollar part and some new cables. What ya know the Scout started right up with the solenoid"
well when i had a 392 in my scout...the starter did the same thing that you described...i put a new one in. Worked great, then it started the same thing about 4-5 months later...i thought that it was just getting too hot, so i would bang on it with a wrench and it would start up everytime.TravisSSII said:My Scout will turn only turn over very slowly. It is like it is not getting enough amps........could this be the starter? The grounds are good. New Painless kit.
