    My first guess is that your starter isn't properly aligned with the flywheel. It may be meshing too tightly causing it to bind, thereby slowing the cranking speed, and drawing lots of current...

    The two Amida switch panels are sold, but he might still have the raw fiberglass console and a replica five speed shift gate. I think he wanted CDN$200 for the leftover pieces, plus shipping.
