Oh man, so many folks would've thrown the toys outta the cot and gone away.

Tony, I had a funny feeling, you'd have to test the theory.... you did....

Good on ya..... yes mate, ya Mum and I are very proud. Please take one gold star, stick on ya forehead and wear it with pride.

Tony you did good, my friend, on an intellectual level you probably don't even realize! LOL. This was a non-trick question and a trick question at the same time. I knew you guys would go all over the place with this one. This is one of the "too deep in the trees to see the forest" questions.   If you just think about the fact one car has Bigger tires, and think about how that affects the entire car (the forest) and not get caught up in specific details like gear ratios, etc. (the trees) it is actually pretty simple.
So Congrats again to Tony for stepping out of the trees to see the Forest! Your intellectual genius came roaring through when you realized --> Yep, stick those bigger tires on the car and put a measure stick up next to it and it raises the car a bit! 

Genius, Man... just pure Mad Genius! Mamma, would be proud, indeed!!

Most of us were trying to re-invent the wheel on this one!

Is there a separate Starter Relay, or does the Solenoid serve that purpose?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 30, 2019 at 5:57pm 7 Comments

Hello All.

I will be replacing the starter solenoid tomorrow (actually my mechanic will do the work, I'll just supervise). In checking the FSM electrical schematic and chapter verbiage, I don't see anything that looks like (or is referred to as) a starter Relay. It seems the Starter Solenoid serves the function and there's no separate relay. Right or Wrong?

If wrong, where…


Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …
