Starter draw amperage?

I have had a few instances lately where the engine cranks a while and stops then fires right up when I try again. Got the starter, alternator, and battery tested. 98%battery, alternator was fine, starter draw read 170. What should the starter read? Any other suggestions?

180 amps is normal/average voltage for a 6 cylinder starter to draw.

I would suspect loose or corroded wire connections, and/or internally corroded wires as the cause of the symptoms you describe.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
