29' DeSoto starter problems

Recommended Posts

Seems like I  can't catch a brake  with this car.Had the starter rebuilt.put it in engine turned over several time then nothing.I have very heavy gauge cables now,new 6 volt battery,does the same thing.Tried 12volt to starter nothing.Pulled the starter again  and bench tested,spin like crazy.Pulled the plugs,hand cranked no problem.It's a NE Electric starter model 58H.I have checked grounds and cables,everything seems to be good.I am getting very close to giving up.I need the engine to turn over to check spark and so on.

Sometimes I get ahead of myself with problems.I re-installed starter,I had been hooking it up backwards.Now connected the right way engine turns over great.I have been working on this alone,I guess I need to take more care in what I;m  doing.
