  2. Pull the starter and see if you can turn the engine by hand. If you are not sure on the starter, have it rebuilt and clean up the foot pedal switch. Those should be available or whoever does the starter can probably do that as well. I always have an auto electric shop to go to, you probably have one locally.

    Thanks everyone for all of the help. I got the truck running great last night. I did 2 things: re-routed the grounds and ensured the connections were clean. i also pulled off that starter switch and gave it a good cleaning as well. The switch looks pretty worn out and will likely need to be replaced sooner than later. After trying to sort out these issues, I think the engine could use a little TLC and should be pulled and looked over to be on the safe side. Thanks again
