hey guys ive been working on the car for a lil while
all back together and it wont start...
the battery was virtually dead... ive spent 2 over night jobs charging it...
then try and start the car all it does it click click click click and eventually da click slows down and then stops
im aware the battery would have something to do with this
my guess is Starter motor would i be right???
also my other thought was it may be possible i upset somethin electrical whilst removing??? i dunno exactly any input would be good... :)
Only a click hey, starter motor isnt stuffed or jammed is it?
My Corona randomly did this and when i pulled the starter motor off, there was a massice crack straight down the center, virtuallt spliting it in 1/2! Changed it and havnt had the problem since (just others instead!)
When charging your battery look at it with your voltmeter. hook it up to the charger and charge untill at about 14.5 Volts. then get a hydrometer and check the Specific gravity of each cell. if they are out then first try equalising the battery by taking the voltage up to 16.5v untill all cells become equal. if one cell is down really low in the red then chances are that the battery has a dead/shorted cell and is stuffed.
Might be a bad connection to your battery terminals. My ED did that (click click click and sometimes started). Found out the battery terminals were dirty as shite. Sanded them back to clean them, whacked 'em back on and covered them in that anti-rust stuff and whammo! One turn of the key and it has started EVERY time since! Knock on wood.
