    1949 Buick Road Master model 70 starter issue?

    Attach the lead/cable to the starter first and then use old terminals on the battery so you dont leave arcing on the battery post or the starter bolt.

    Try verifying by pulling the starter out and testing on the bench.

    Yep, there is an issue with the solenoid of the starter.

    Without the trigger wire connected?

    Ok, so the starter did not stall, but kept on turning the engine over but the engine did not start? Your battery didn't go flat?

    When the starter gets stuck/stalled it draws lots of current (with time) from the battery via the main power cable, this will cause the starter to get hot and burn up.

    So the trigger wire is not connected but the starter still turns over? If so, then most likely the contacts in the solenoid have fused together. Did the starter turn the engine over while you were trying to disconnect the battery wire or was the starter stalled? Any smoke or smell coming from the starter?

    If I understand correctly, the power to the trigger wire does not switch off after the starter fires the first time. The problem seem to be somewhere in your wiring that does not turn off the trigger wire power. Disconnect the main power (big cable) feed to the starter from the battery then test the circuits that need to turn the trigger wire off with test light .

    Attached a test light to the trigger wire on the starter then start your diagnosis.
