Trying to start my 1972, 302-2v, automatic after 5 years in the garage. I have done all of the necessary things, new wiring, plugs, new oil, filters, new belts etc.. I also have a new Petronix electronic ignition and flamethrower coil installed. My engine cranks great, sounds real strong and almost cranks, but then I hear a noise in the Starter Solenoid area and then something sticks and I cannot turn off the car. The car keeps cranking. I turn off the ignition switch and the car keeps on cranking, I have to pull the battery cable to stop the engine from cranking. I installed a new Starter Solenoid and then reinstalled my old one. The problem persists with both of them.
