Alright so I am trying to install a new starter on my 1986 ramcharger (5.9liter automatic) and we got it all hooked up... it mates up flush with the flywheel housing... and when i go to put the negative battery terminal on... it spins and the negative/battery connection sparks and smokes. this is obviously not good. So I thought maybe it's grounded somewhere along the line on the starter. And the two wires used to be attached by rubber insulating them from each other... but that fell apart as i was taking it off, so i covered them in electrical tape. But i double checked all of that, cant see anywhere that it may be grounded. So I am really lost. Please somebody give me some advice, I'm supposed to be in portland sunday for mothers day.
