Thanks for the info everybody. Bill, I thought I'd start with the cheap stuff first and change the cables. I've got a new one for the positive terminal laying around which I never got around to using. I'll start there. If it isn't the cable then it's probably safe to say it's the starter but I'll go slowly before I make that conclusion. I think that there are other electrical anomalies that might point in the direction of bad cables as well. I'll keep you all apprised of the progress. Thanks.
