Hi all. I had the starter changed on my 1985 C20 Silverado Suburban. Charged up the battery and she fired up great. I turned her off and gave it another try. This time no sound, no clicks, and smoke!

Recheck the battery connections at the starter, make sure to disconnect the battery before you do, if the connections are tight then you may have a bad starter. It happens.

Smart money says T.S. is right. You got a bad rebuilt starter.

Thanks! The problem ended up being a battery cable resting on the exhaust manifold.
