Make sure you have a good ground from the battery to engine and then a cable from engine to frame/firewall. This might be your problem. Remember that the engine sits on rubber mounts and is connected with rubber hoses so grounds are very important. Good luck.

Another possibility is that when being moved around the fusible links found in the harness at the starter assembly could be damaged or open circuit.
