Have the starter load tested by a competent shop.

Subject: [Healeys] Starter resistance 

I am back to having starter motor issues. 


The starter turns over very slowly and will stop turning at all. I bypassed the battery cutoff switch because it was getting hot, which indicates too much resistance. Now when I turn over the starter, using the ignition switch, the cable from the solenoid to the starter motor gets hot at the connection to the starter motor. All connections are tight. 


The battery is fully charged. 


What could be causing the cable to overheat? What should I check? 


Thank you,
