You start at the battery and end at the starter. Are both battery cables clean and do they both have quality battery terminal ends?

If you want to just replace an item that is the most common problem, replace the ignition switch which you can buy from a Case parts dealer. The switch is very odd and not found elsewhere.
Is the ideal that I will check at the battery and not have any drop in that voltage all the way to the starter? Also if I short across the solenoid terminals and still have the problem, does that eliminate the ignition switch as the problem?
