Well, it stopped raining for a little while so I went out and checked some volts on my wires...The Wire connecting into the B terminal of my starter is getting a constant 12.6V and the wire going into the S terminal (spade terminal) is getting a .4V constant until the ignition is activated and then it jumps to a 11.89V...With all this in mind, it's giving me a headache because the wiring is getting proper voltage so what the heck is the problem...Bad ground?

As far as I know, the wires are getting proper voltage...The wire to the B terminal of the starter is getting roughly 12.4 volts and the wire to the S terminal is getting roughly 11.89 volts...you can take the starter out...Attach a jumper cable to it and put a screwdriver between the 2 terminals and get it to spin...However, whenever I bolt the starter to the engine and connect it and try arcing a screwdriver between the 2, I got it to spin for a second then when I pulled the screwdriver back out and tried it again I only got a "click"...What the heck is going on ( I'm not much of an electronic guy so this is killing me

Use aligator jumpers from Radio Shack and tell us what the small wire measures when IT IS HOOKED UP TO THE SOLINOID. Sounds like a bad solinoid although when that's bad the motors will prolly go NEXT. Check the grounds also. NK.
