Been lurking on the list for a long time, and have learned quite a bit through 
your experiences. 
Well now I am having an experience of my own.  

After some starter fault diagnosis via the Haynes manual, it appeared as if the 
solenoid was shot.
 I replaced the solenoid this afternoon.  When I reconnect the battery, it 
sounds as if the
starter begins to turn over very slowly.

Removing the solenoid from the starter (to disconnect it from the starter STA 
connection) and
reconnecting the battery, I get no voltage reading from the STA side of the 
solenoid to ground. 
This would lead me to believe the solenoid is OK, but then again I am beginning 
to think that I
don't have a clue.

Also - is it correct for the starter STA connection to be grounded?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
