Truck Won’t Start, Is It The Battery Or Starter Or

Recommended Posts

So I am working on a B for a new friend, he says she stopped running a few months back, but lucky it sounds like it is only a fuel filter problem.

But first I must get her cranking over!

We put new batteries in her last time, but today they only had a half charge.

Tomorrow morning gonna try again with full batteries.

It seams the rig has a 12V starter in her.

Replaces the starter silinod, helped a lil bit it seams, but still no go.

The switch thingy under the passenger seat has been removed.

Here is my drawing of the starter and solenoid.

Tomorrow I will hook the batteries up as they should be, then push the start button.

Any ideas?

Welp,

After putting in a new starter, new battery cables, new tank of fuel, and a fuel filter, the old gal runs!

Boy did I make that guy happy!

Even moved the truck to its new yard under her own power today!

Now it seams I have a full time job for the next few weeks fixing the truck up for him.

Keep the custumers comming!!!!!!!!!!!

Did you find the exact cause? I know I had our starter rebuilt due to never being cleaned. Seems that the starter is supposed to be taken apart regularly and cleaned out.
