Hey I am new to this forum and I have done some searching before posting... I have a 73 Mach 1 orig. 302. Just replaced the starter solenoid and we still can't get the motor to turn over, you can jump the posts on the solenoid and it will try to kick over. getting spark to the distrib. We can't figure out what the problem is. any help will be greatly appreciated.

Just becasue your battery reads 12v dosent mean that it has the amps to cranks the motor. If it a couple years old you should take it to a place where they can test the cranking amps to make sure it is ok. A friend of mine had same problem, we replaced starter, solenoid, batter calbes because the battery was reading
12vs. We took the battery in and it had only a 1/4 of the cranking amps it should have.
