I think Ohm's Law (I = V/R) says the opposite: since the voltage is constant (approx. 12 volts), if R goes up, then current (the "I" in the equation) goes down.resistance, increased current draw, increased heat
A proper ground is important to the proper functioning of a starter. Without a proper ground, the current will find an alternate path - such as the throttle linkage - and that component may get hot and smoke.
I like that theory. When a component fails shortly after being replaced, it is usually the new part, not something tried & true.rogerspeed said:sounds like the solenoid part of the starter burned up, could be faulty rebuild,
