  • When All Else Fails....Seek A Pro!

    Well,

    Having followed all the suggestions on this forum,and still not being able to find out the cause of my labored/slow crank when hot in my Avanti R-1....I know when (as Kenny Rogers said) to fold 'em...and seek the council of a professional electrical trouble shooter.....so having 35 years of electrical expertise and a sheet full of test instruments I will turn my beloved Avanti over to 'the expert' we will wait until the car is really heated and exhibits the above mentioned malady.....driving the car is just not fun, if in the back of ones mind one is thinking..."will it re-start after stopping for fuel/food?" And if not will the daggers hurled from my wife's eyes penetrate the flesh of this Stude lover? Will post the outcome by month's end.......

            Call me crazy, but I'm still going to go with it being a starter problem.

                        I had a 55 Commander that was hard to start when it was hot (of course it was 6 volt). I was told the bad rings and low compression would cause that.

                            My guess is either the starter or a ground connection - which could be battery cables or battery terminals. I have seen a perfectly good looking battery cable that was corroded internally. And heat increases resistance.

                            The starter is closest to the heat and so ...

                            I had a 911 that started when cool perfectly. After I drove for a bout an hour, it wouldn't turn over at all. After cleaning all ground connections, and changing the ground strap, it still came back. The I swapped the starter and the problem went away forever.

                            It never dragged. It either worked perfectly or when real warm didn't work at all.
