Yep, you found your problem. Loose connection to the starter. Starter is grounded via itself to the block, the one wire is the start power wire.

Edit: And be careful with the starter power wire. If you touch it and a ground on the car (almost any part of the car) you will get a shock. You would be grounding the positive. If working on the starter disconnect the battery first.
