I will try the starter clean but what is the ground mod? I couldn't find it in a search. A new battery and doing something about the air filter will be a must too. Thanks all


The ground mod is using a wire or strap to connect the starter motor brush base plate with the body of the starter motor. I used a wire. Stock relies on small bent tangs for ground contact. The tangs become unbent corroded and worn, leading to a weak ground to the brushes and resulting power loss. Check the Quick Reference under the General Discussion heading for lots of mods etc. Ofapars has a great starter mod/service write up HERE
