Car starts fine in the morning. Drive it around, park it, turn off. Go to start it and no start.
When turning the key the starter seloniod ' clicks ' but starter won't turn. Let it cool or
jump it and it will start. I have replaced the battery, starter ( twice ), battery cables, battery
terminals. I don't know what else to do, even the mechanic is scratching his head...please

if your mechanic is scratching his head- find another mechanic- one without lice- there are other things to check- like a good ground- etc.

I agree with checking the grounds. Check frame and motor negative battery connections. Also check the solenoid wire for proper voltage. When key turned to the start position you should get a solid 12 volts to the solenoid wire. If you are not then I would check relays and possibly the ignition switch itself.

Ok I finally got to working on the car. I checked the voltage going to the starter solenoid a solid 12V. Relays ok. I noticed that the ground from the battery to chassis was a little rusty, went to ratchet off the bolt an ' crack '. I was completely rusted. The head of the bolt snapped off. I moved the ground wire to another part of the chassis and in addition I replaced the ALT 100A fusible link. The car has been starting everytime now going on three days...THANK YOU SO MUCH for your help. You have no idea how frustrating this has been!
