I am trying to get a 1965 Chevy 6cyl. farm truck started. Then to move it so I can get to things I have stored in a barn. The battery is dead, frozen,junk. I hooked jumpers to it, but nothing happered. The battery cable ends and ends of the cable were white and green. I cleaned, sanded ends of cable and sand blasted cable ends. Went back a week later,put everything back together, with a good battery. But when I went ro put the cable on the post I got sparks, then heard some sizziling and seen smoke comming from the regulator. I pulled cable off (total of maybe 10seconds). I was told that maybe the solenoid is stuck. Today I pulled the starter and checked it on the ground, solenoid and starter work fine. I will put the starter back on tomorrow. The person who own the truck and barn and gets storage rent isn't very conserned about it. Where do I go next?
