Hey Welcome to the Forum kvjackson
What does it do when you say it acts like a weak battery? Hope you saved the starter, they usually just need to be cleaned inside.
Put you mileage in your profile that way if you have a question, a lot of times mileage will factor in the answer you get. Just go to the main page on the right, Menu, My Account, Profile
Did you get a repair manual for it?
Restos are fun and challenging.

It is :waving:. Hit up the tech forum with your starter question, one of the guru's (or all of 'em sometimes) should be able to walk you to a solution. I'm useless as that problem hasn't come up on mine yet.

Welcome to the forum. Your post should be in the technical forum, a moderator will probably move it there for you soon.

When you replaced the starter motor, did you fit a used one? As many of them suffer from the same problems, chances are a used one won't be much better than your original one.
