    Default Wont crank when hot? could I have the wrong starter?

    My 93 454 feels a little weak when starting to began with (starters a year old) I just got home did some stuff and was about to go talk to someone about having work done to my truck... and now it wont restart. its done this before where sitting for like 20-30mins go to start it would crank a few times and stop like if a dead battery then retrying right away it would crank a bit more but turn over. (battery is only 2-3 years old.) been wondering could the person who did the starter put like the 350's in? I'm guessing that the 454 would have a stronger one.

    Not sure abbout the starter size difference but start with checking all the wires that run from the battery to the starter, make sure the connection are tight and clean, corrosion on battery and ground lines can cause a vehicle to have low voltage, even enough for the vehicle not to start. Corrosion is a power parasite!

    there is surprisingly no Corrosion even though I have done nothing to prevent it. I pulled the battery and put it on a quick charge at this point the truck was cold but it fired right up no cranking. maybe my drive to work and home just dosen't charge the battery enough... the alt is 3-4 months old.
