78vette I'd like to say I know but I have a 20 $ multimeter and I'm pretty sure I'd blow the thing up trying to test I'm pretty sure the meter only goes up to 2A Max

Yep, everything will seem and test perfectly. Lights, radio, everything, but it will not turn over.

bigdog7373 Cable are bad. I had the same problem. Replaced starter and battery and nothing. Turned out to be a stupid $10 cable.

78vette Ok so I rechecked the volts I'm getting 12.45 from the positive and 12.3 from the purple silanoid wire when I go to crank , the battery is resestering 12.45 and the starter bench test fine so I'm stumped why it's not cranking . Plz HELP I can't figure it out

spinn Run the battery + circuit in parallel. make the two red positives from bat to starter the same gauge and conect from the same places. Voltage will stay the same amps will double. It is ohms law.

Check the ground.

78vette ive replaced the starter already all 15lbs of it , car still wont start i have a optima red top in it brand new now the only thing i can think of is its the battery cables they dont look super hard to replace but ive thought that about a lot of things on a car and been wrong , the positive has been replaced before so it leads me to think that its had this problem before

vinniekq2 My 81 had starter issues when I bought it. I replaced the started with a super high torque starter. The battery is in stock location behind seat.using stock wires.so far problem fixed.also using the best battery I could fit in

78vette i do have one more question when checking my volts from the starter terminal im not getting enough to start the car i am planing on replacing the battery cables tonight in hopes to corect this problem i was wondering if anyone has done this on this model vette and if they had any advice for me thanks

spinn You might benefit from a MSD Boost retard. If this is driven on the street and requires a curve to react to different driving. Made all the difference in my truck after I gave in to the purchase. You can go max timing and have no detonation. My detonation began at around 4-5000rpm. Making only 5 psi boost. No matter how the mixture was enriched or timming reduced it did not solve the problem completely. The BTM solved the problem my engine was experiencing, and allows maximum power extraction in the package.
