Question, Im looking at my electrical wires while Im waiting for my ignition switch. It seems like the starter wire from the battery may be grounding out on the header. I removed the wire and saw a bare spot on the wire (it was resting on the header) and what looks like the remnants of a arc on the header. Can that cause the motor so suddenly stall out?
Also Is it normal to have Three wires going to starter?
1, Starter wire from battery 2, A wire that is attatched to the old resistor wire
3, What looks like a little larger purple wire from the bulkhead.

Thanks
