Following on from my Post "Battery Recommendations" all components and connections have been checked and all deemed OK but the problem of "lethargic" cranking still continues.
I am wondering if I have an earthing problem. The -ve from the battery is earthed direct to a bolt on the bellhousing and the starter motor obviously earths direct on the block. I can find no other relevant earth straps. Is there supposed to be an earth cable from the engine block to the chassis? (I remember on a previous crossflow I had there was another earth cable. I seem to recall it ran from the block/bellhousing to the brake master cylinder mounting bracket - but I may be mistaken on its location).
Any thoughts on the need for such an earth strap and, if so, its location?
