93 5.0 I just replaced head gaskets on isn't getting any power to the starter. Before I replaced the gaskets it turned over fine. Wondering If I missed a ground that anyone who had this problem knows about? Its got a new relay and starter just not doing anything when I try to crank the engine. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

ok, you can try this if you want just to make sure the it turns. stick a screwdriver between the big posts on the solenoid, make sure its in neutral. i just went through this last night. lol. took me about two hours to figure out that one of my wires got switched.
all your fuses are good right? neutral safety switch connected, and you can also test power coming out of the ignition switch under the column just a little bit beneath the wheel. there will be a white/pink wire coming out of the ignition switch, test power at that and see what you get. that wire sends power out to the solenoid .once again test this with the key trying to start the car

My sister's husband and I went through something similar when we were wiring up the convertible he's building for her. It was the chassis ground. Remember, there's an engine AND chassis ground, make sure both are connected. Also, the ground MUST NOT be contacting any paint AT ALL. It will not properly ground, if at all. Check them, insure proper ground, then try again.
In such a world as this does one dare to think for himself?
