Before changing the clutch she started up just fine. Now all i get is a clicking noise from the starter. Could it be a ground because i still have one ground wire to plug in that is on top of the tranny. I just can't seem to find where it goes. Every time i have heard a starter click it was shot. What could have made it do this????

Is the battery charged and making good connection with its cables? Did you hook the starter wires back up correctly?

Ya connect the starter ground or it will not start, there is a long *** bolt about 5" long that holds the starter in place, I used that for it.

You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out. You put your left foot in, and then you shake it all about... Connect that ground and maybe thats what this problem's all about...er....that's what it's all about?

The starter is grounded but the ground wire that is on the very top of the tranny by the intake manifold is not hooked up. I just cannot find where it plugs into. Anyone know???
