    Went to start the 72 GS 455 (Randy Lutz old car) today and got the dreaded clicks.

    Battery checks out 100%, so leaning towards the starter.

    Any recommended high torque stick style starters?

    Thanks

    Check for bad connection before you start replacing parts!

    How about the connections at the starter? Clean and tight?

    How was the battery tested?

    How is the ground holding?
    Use jumper cables to make good ground to the engine.

    Peace, Kacper.

    If the jumper works, check the connection at the firewall behind the fuse box.
