77_Cruiser Posted February 17, 2018 Share Posted February 17, 2018 Had the mechanic come out and get the truck running last week. He pulled out the terminals to the battery box as he was not impressed by the lack of slack in the lines. Parked it in storage and tried to start it this morning. It is about 30 degF. Reconnected the batteries due to suspicion of possible short. Took the voltmeter to each battery, all 6V+ and 12V+ across the series connections. However, getting absolutely nothing to the truck. No radio, no lights, nothing. Needless to say, the truck does not start. Tried jostling the telescoping steering wheel but nothing seem to be affected electrically by that at all. Going to go back later and look at the fuse box. Thinking of plugging in the block heater too. I think these systems have the main power routing to the starter before the rest of the truck. Starter has been getting stuck lately on harsh shutdowns. THIS IS A RESTORATION PROJECT in its infancy. I suppose there is much to find out about this rig. Any ideas are appreciated.
