Thanks for the responses, and ideas. Sorry for not explaining things better. I will try to explain what it sounds like when it tries to start. When it is warm it seems like the battery has lost it's charge and barely turns over, like it will turn over maybe once or twice real slow and then nothing. Yes, I will try running the ground also to the starter, it's worth a shot.
It starts okay when cold. When it get's up to normal operating temp and I turn it off and come back in 3-5 minutes it cranks really hard. I let it cool down and then it will start. I am thinking of putting a heat sheild over the starter if that is the problem. I had an old timer say that there may be carbon build up and when it gets warm it expands. Any other suggestions out there?
