It's alive!!!!

Finally after three weeks of futzing with trying to get my plowtruck to start, it finally cranked up and ran!!! I'm thrilled because it hasn't started in over six months and now it runs, (smokes a lot due to bad rings, I think) but it runs. All I needed was a new fusible link by the starter and a pair of vise-grips to hold a ground wire to the firewall. I'll post pics in my journal tomorrow. Thanks go out to Doc for the electrical advice (not about the vise-grips,about the starter).


In a while, Chet.

Sounds good, and just in time for winter.......I guess.
You know I don't know exactly what your weather is like up there right now, but Im guessing there isn't much to plow right?
