Re: Electrical Ground Issue - Starter
"There is no external ground wire on the solenoid it is internally grounded to the chassis."
Key word in my reply is the last word above, "chassis", should really read two words, "ENGINE BLOCK", as the solenoid is grounded to the starter, starter to the ENGINE BLOCK, block should be the "buss bar" for everything else, chassis, sheet metal, with main ground cable back to battery negative terminal. IF there is a separate smaller gauge ground wire off the battery cable at battery, yes, then to the chassis.
