I just had a friends Chevy van (1984, 5.0 liter, 4bbl carb) do EXACTLY what you are describing. I replaced the battery, replaced the starter, cleaned the battery cables at both ends, and did a continuity test on the fusable links. None of that helped. I took it to my mechanic and he said that the positive battery cable at the battery was corroded and needed to be replaced. The connector was the type where a heavy guage raw wire gets squeezed on by two flat plates, and the wire had corroded inside the plates! So check your connections at all possible points!

Good luck!

Please list all the current symptom's. When you try to start the car does the engine Spin? If so how fast? Can you jump start the car and get it started?
