  1. Also need to check the starter amperage draw with a full charged battery. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. If you disconnect the ground while the starter is engaged, it will release the pressure from the gears, in turn allowing the spring the return the starter gear and release the solenoid and connection to the starter motor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The solenoid return spring is not bringing the starter gear back from the ring gear.. may be binding when trying to return the gear..the spring disengages the circuit from the starter motor not from the solenoid.. the key engages the solenoid only. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I misread it was replaced...most likely lubrication on the shaft where the gear slides.
  6. It sounds to me, the starter motor gear shaft is galled, rusty or dry. it could also be the bushings are worn. Either case it sounds like a new starter is recommended. What is the amperage draw while the starter is cranking the engine? Check your grounds and battery cables for corrosion.
  7. I agree with Andrew, as it is a ticking time bomb if you drive it further. Depending on the gear that is missing the tooth. You may be able to just replace that gear..you didn’t mention which gear is missing a tooth, ring/pinion, side or spider gears.. FWIW, M Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I believe they are still manufactured. Check their website.. Panasport wheels in Torrance , California.. sorry I don’t have their web address. They come in different styles and can be custom made. IIRC Cheers, Matt Website www.panasport.com Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. I had this same issue and found the crank sensor was wired backwards. Make sure you have verified a signal out of the sensor. I also had to buy new VR sensor, as the so called good used one wasn't working. You may have already done that. FWIW, Matt
  12. I’ll take the Cibie H4’s. Pm coming Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Did your tach wire , located at the back of the tachometer gauge get shorted or fall off and short against the body.. a loose terminal could fall off / short and kill the engine. It’s happened to me before. It comes off the negative side of coil and won’t allow the points to work properly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. That component next to your distributor is an aftermarket VDO oil pressure sending unit with a low pressure light.. one side functions like the factory sender. The other terminal goes to a VDO oil pressure gauge. Good thing to have. The ground is through the engine block. Cheers, Matt Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Is there no spark when cranking only? Is there 10.5-12v at positive side of coil in the run position? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
