It turns out, it was the 6 month old starter. Harrison got it. It was spinning, but it wasn't popping out to engage the gears. The NAPA near my house honored the warranty even though it was purchased by the previous owner at a NAPA 2-1/2 hours away.

Glc, yes I know the relay you were referring to. That wasn't the problem, but I am starting to get a good understanding of the starting system.

I am no mechanic. I'm probably not good for a backyard mechanic, but this '78 is easy to work on even for me. The weather is finally getting spring like here in CO, so I will take some pictures and post them here.

Thanks again! Brent
