    Check to ensure all you wires are tight at the starter. If they are also inspect them for cracks or missing insulation. Chances are you blew a few when it was arching so also check those.

    If it dosn't start after tightening the connections check the fuse link from the starter solenoid to the alternator (if it is distorted from heat you must replace/splice). You could have blown the fuse link by grounding (sparks). The fuse link is a glorified way to say reduction in wire size from the alternator (usually 10 gage) to the starter solenoid (usually 12 gauge).
