The battery cable goes on the large post nearest the battery,and all others,except for one small wire made to fit the small terminal.The cable going to the starter goes on the large post on the other side of where you put the battery cable on,the opposite side

I have a 1991 rs camaro 305 . I just replaced the starter motor when i went to hook back up the battery the starter motor began to spin. Need some help?

sounds as if you have connected the heavy battery wire to the wrong side of the solenoid, there are two large wires on the solenoid one goes into the starter and the other is from the battery. A smaller wire is needed for energising the solenoid. When you turn the key the solenoid is energized becoming an electromagnet, this does two things, 1 engages with the engine 2 connects the two heavy poles to spin the starter and start the engine .
Check you have refitted the wires correctly

1986 Ford F350 wont start

Try following the positive battery cable from the battery to the starter solenoid (not sure if you have an inner fender-mounted solenoid or a starter-mounted one. Take one lead of a pair of jumper cables and connect one end to the solenoid terminal with the cable from the battery, and take the other end of that same jumper cable lead and momentarily connect it to the other large terminal on the starter solenoid. If the starter engages when you do this, replace the starter solenoid. If the engine doesn't try to crank when you do this, you probably have a bad starter. Good luck.

Replaced fender silenoid and ignition switch under dash. Even after unhooking all terminals from starter, the positive cable from battery is bubbling hot. There is a faint clicking coming from under...

Tough one. First thing I would do is replace your cables, signal wire from ignition switch to solenoid included. Sounds like a short somewhere.

1991 ford 460 won't start

Make sure the connections are Clean and tight on the solenoid first. The solenoid itself has rather small studs
holding those big cables. If checking those connections does not solve the problem then you need to crawl under the rig and check the cable on the starter if tight the starter will need to be replaced.

F350 Turbo Diesel doesn't respond when I turn Key

If everything else on your vehicle works, the first thing I would do would be to take the starter off and have it tested. If you are jumping the poles on the solenoid and nothing is happening, the problem is most likely either a short between the solenoid and the starter, or the starter itself. Also, if the starter is loose, it can loose it's ground to the motor.
