<x-flowed>Update: the starter is working again. Fiddling with the wiring got it going. Now I am cranking the car, and I have no spark. Checked the coil, no spark coming out. Replaced it. Checked the new coil. Still no spark. Checked with the multimeter. 12 volts running through it fine, pulling 6 amps. Nothing coming out. The resistance on both circuits of the coil is the same, about 9000 ohms. No spark coming out. Ideas? Buehler?
Could the starter bush hang onto the starter and keep the solenoid energised?
