1964 El Camino SS stock 283 2 bbl. Converted years ago to 4 speed. The battery appears to be at full voltage. Problem: Will not start. Key on, idiot lites on, when you go to start the solenoid clicks but starter will not turn over. It appears to suck the current from the battery that is the lights dim. Sometimes the starter will attempt to turn over but not long enough to start. The problem appears to have started after it was painted and the dash removed and cleaned up. It will run for a couple of days or weeks and then just won’t start again. Eventually it does start again and I go back through this cycle of trying to find the problem. It ran for 3 weeks after the starter was replaced, that was the 1st thing replaced. Then I replaced the ignition switch and the battery and have not been able to get it to restart. Is there anything else I should be checking?
