I just installed a new engine in my car its a carbed 1992 350 l98 I was cranking it up when I hear this sizzling sound coming from the postive post on the battery. I quickley removed the + terminal and now when I try and reconnect it its like im shorting the postive and negtive battery terminal it was working fine then all a sudden that sizzling and and sparks. could it be the starter and help?

I had my headers burn though the positive cable near the starter and caused the same problems. Like JWagner stated, check it out. I ended up rerouting my positive cable to prevent it from happening again. Man headers can be a PITA at times.

Carefully check all starter solenoid connections, if anything got smashed, broke or terminals shifted, you may have your short at that point under the car.
