  4. Upon further review... Last week I debated on buying a new starter or having a local shop give me a hand. When I got the quote, it was actually very good and well worth it to pay the extra $150. Then Saturday, I drove downtown for coffee. It was a wet, cold (35º) morning. The car had previously sat for 4 days in my garage. After a couple hours, I went out to leave. The slow turn of the starter wasn't enough to get it going. My battery was weak and grew weaker. Eventually, after several attempts, it was flooded by now. I called AAA and they sent the jump unit out with a 3000 amp jumper. Nope. would budge after a few slow turned. So I settled for a tow home. After charging the battery over night, and long enough for the fuel in the flooded carb to evaporate, it fired up fine the next morning, be it still a slow turn-over of the starter. I was able to make it to the shop today. Before swapping out the charger, they gave it a good look and tested some of the involved components. The problem was the cable from the battery to the starter. the ground was broken and only working intermittently. The bolt holding the battery cable to the started was heavily corroded. Two items I should have noticed. After replacing the cable and cleaning the securing bolt, the original starter roared back to life. Battery checked out fine too. So the old saying, "check the easy stuff first" applies here too. I'm still learning
  5. If I’m going to breakdown, it might as well be in front of this stylish cafe.
  6. I'm looking at a "remanufactured" one. A friend mentioned over a year ago I should replace it, but it keeps working. But today it sounded different, while I was out in the woods, out of cell coverage. It started, but it was different, so...
  7. I may be in the market for a new starter. Are the rebuilt Bosch at several online shops the way to go?
  8. Yes, let me know the best way to buy it from you. My address is 3655 Glen Oak Dr, Eugene OR 97405 Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks, I’ll shoot you a message later today Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I need two license plate lights for '74 2002, or one with some extra copper screws to hold down the wire connections. I don't need the domes, but will buy if need.
