I was wondering if y'all could help me with this recurring problem.
My 1983 Ford F-350 has had a starter problem for the past couple of months. After a week or so of installing a new starter and solenoid the starter would begin to spin and not engage the flywheel.
I have had it tested at three different stores and it passes every time yet when installed in the car it stops working. I have replaced most of the ignition system related to the starter and I'm not sure if it's something I'm missing. There is an orange wire with a fusible link that has some wear - would that cause an issue like this?
Any suggestions on what to do? I have also replaced the solenoid on multiple occasions.
