While looking for some info pertaining to a problem I have, I saw a post from Irelandschild stating that a pos grnd starter will run backwards if connected in a negative grnd fashion. Is this true?

That's only true of permanent magnet electric motors. Old style starters had field windings, and since you would be reversing the polarity to both the field AND the armature, the motor will spin the same direction it always did. :thumbup:
