the chassis ground connection is BAD...undo the 1/0 battery cable from the battery to the chassis ground and wirebrush it shiny, then re-attach the lug...get it clean enough to be happy with 300 cca~ also the connection to the motor block (near the alternator)....again the 1/0 cable needed for your starter motor to get what it needs~

...assure the battery is newer than five...by the "Knock off" labels at the top of the battery....BUY a new battery, thank you~
