When to start the 64 convert —-only to be hearing a clonking sound and the engine did not turn over
My gut feeling was that it was the starter solenoid —by the sound —so got myself prepared to possible be replacing the solenoid or rebuilding the starter motor
To my very good fortune the car was in the garage and I was not stranded someplace
In the process of removing the solenoid wires I saw that one of the terminals was not as tight as it SB to the solenoid casing
Both nuts in front and behind the wire terminal on the lower solenoid terminal were not as tight as I suspected they should be
Put the wiring back together —-with the thought if I got lucky —-I might have found the problem
Hit the starter —and she fired right up ! ( always good to hear that Barrrrrroooooomm !! ! )
I should go play Lotto or something today
Saved me a lot of time and a few dollar - and made my day —all at the Same Time !
Some days are surely better than others —and I am smiling a lot today
The weather in North Central FL is 75 -80 sunny and dry so very glad the problems was solve quickly and I am back —-to Enjoying my Pride and Joy
The weather hear is outstanding from now until April (do come on down ! ) with the exception of a few colder days and nights here and there that will get down to freezing for a few hours in the mornings but then the day will be 60 degrees
The reason I chose to retire in this very wonderful piece of paradise and sporting around in my Classic Antique Cadillac —-with the top down in the best possible weather
I am still ———-SMILING a LOT !
Glad to read tat your problem was loose nuts and you’re back on the road. Enjoy the weather and that fine car of yours!
