Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 65 Chevelle 283 will not start. When I turn the key, the gauges twitch but no start. The starter does not click, nothing. What can I check?

You can try two things. Tap on the solenoid with a hammer. Then try again. Or pull the small wire off the solenoid and see if you have 12 volts at the wire when the key is in the start position. The battery is fully charged right? Michael
