can you hear the starter spin faintly when you jump it? like if the solenoid wasn't engaging into the flywheel? other than that i think you got everything covered.... did they load test the starter or just put power to it and spin it up? also make sure the copper wire from the main lug on the starter to the brushes inside the starter is not damaged or missing.. take some jumper cables and hook them to your battery and then directly to the starter and see if it spins it up if not try that with a different battery,, if still no go buy a new starter it may not be performing under heavy load good luck please rate -jeff

All 4 power wires go together on the large center stud on the solenoid.
The purple wire goes on the small stud.
The purple wire supplys the trigger signal when the key is turned to the start position.Since your solenoid is clicking when the key is turned to start this is working properly.
I would check battery connections and then check power connections on solenoid again.Make sure all connections are clean and tight.

Hey there Hurst,
Here's a site that has a specific manual for Your year http://www.oldcarnetwork.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=MP0229 the other option is search about a bit at swap meets and such and find a "shop manual" as they are a wealth of info(they where used at dealers in their day).You can sometimes find these manuals in Your local library as well so it may be worth a look see there.Best of luck and happy Oldsmobiling:>:>:>
