>> You missed a clue Grant. He said "... turn of the key yielded only ..."
>> Sounds like he has a solenoid system, not a foot starter.
>> If all of Grant's other very good troubleshooting suggestions
>> do not solve your problem you can either replace or (if you are
>> incredibly cheap like me) fix the solenoid yourself.
>> I learned how to double the life of a solenoid from a Chevy
>> mechanic in the early sixties.
>> Remove the solenoid from the starter.
>> Remove the plastic end cap from the solenoid.
>> Turn the 2 large studs in the cap a half turn which will
>> expose new unused contact surface. These studs have a

>> in any of 4 positions, but only 2 positions will work correctly.
>> Make sure you turn them a half turn.
>> Use emery cloth (several steps coarse to fine) on the copper
>> alloy disk removing the pitted/corroded/arched material.
>> Re-assemble and re-install on the vehicle.
>> Most of the time the solenoid will be as good as new. Of course
>> someone may have already done this once, in which case you probably
