Weak start today on my 420. Wouldn't start in the yard. Just click. Where do I start? Battery shows 12.8 volts.

On the 1988 316 I purchased during October this fall, the starter would barely click or turn over or not at all even when jumping from POs big pickup. I replaced the ignition switch, cleaned all wiring connections, installed starting improvement kit and now it starts instantly with just a turn of the key. Thread on it is still here.

JRL's 316 sprucing up

Dielectric grease was used on the wiring connections also.
