Ok guys, I need some input and ideas. The starter on 1979 35hp Evinrude is dragging bad. Here is what I have done. Changed the battery cables. Fully charged the starting battery. Changed the starter solonoid (a used one from my parts motor) and changed starters. Actually, the one I replaced wouldn't do anything at all, and the one I installed (one I had in my shop from my parts motor) is dragging bad enough that it won't start the engine. Could the solonoid be going bad? I have checked volts on the battery side of the solonoid and I have 12 volts. I have also checked all connections and replaced the battery terminals on my cables. Help please.
