Re: Follow up question - How do I identify the starter...
The starter is not in the photo that you provided. To access the starter, you mut be UNDER the vehicle. Roll under it & take pictures at the area between the engine & the transmission, repost and I will ID the starter for you.
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.

First check your battery. Then unhook each batter post one by one and clean the ends. Follow the black wire to where it ground to your frame, clean the connection there also. Then follow the red wire to your starter and clean the connections there also.
If that does not fix your problem, then remove the starter/solenoid and take it to your local auto parts store to have it tested for free.
There are 2 possible reason for this: 1- The battery is weak. Solution:s Need to charge it fully. 2- The starter solenoid get corroded due to arcing after a period of time causing high resistance, so current can't follow enough to feed the starter. Solution: Replace the solenoid. Here how it looks:
so did this problem just happen or did you do some wiring repairs??. on a 1977 the only solenoid should be the fender. I dont have a wiring diagram that old. if it just happened there is a small wire on the solenoid on the fender, unhook this wire, and see if it happens again. if the starter does not engage then you may have a ign switch problem, if it still engages then the solenoid is bad.
