starter motor issue

just would like to know what would cause a starter motor to not stop working even when the ignition is off and I had to disconnect the battery to stop it from operating...
is that a solanoid issue? if I put another solanoid on it will that fix that or is the starter motor kaput?
cheers
Grant

73 HQ Ute and cooling systems ??

So lets start with what I have and where I am,,,

Bel is a 73 HQ Ute Belmont, running a Chevy 383 with a TH 700 R4 transmission. Now to make things fun both me and Bel are located State Side ( U.S.A.)

So my question is what do you all use to help keep the TH 700 running cool ??

I have a transmission cooler in the radiator pushing to a Transmission cooler from PAC TEN ( who built my transmission )but I could not mount the electric transmission cooling fan.

Also besides Resto Country who else do you use use finding parts ????
