I just picked up an '82 with a 351 in it for $400. I was told that all it needed was to have the timing set, and the thing would fire right up... So i set the distributor with the number 1 piston at top dead center, and rewired it with the proper wires going to the proper plugs and such. NOW i can't get the f'ing starter to crank. I checked the starter on a machine, and it's fine. So i thought my next problem would have been the solenoid, so i replaced it with a borg warner one, and now the thing STILL wont crank. I've tried it from several different batteries, and the only thing i get is one or two lazy cranks IF THAT! Any ideas? I love this truck, but it would be way better running. I've already got a long-travel kit in mind, and it's getting ready for a roll cage, but i've never run into problems like this with a motor before... OH YEAH, the motor is BRAND NEW with 200 miles on it. I have the paper work proving that from when i bought it. any help would be greatly appreciated... thanks.
