I was having the usually starter problems after driving a hour or so stopped for coffee went to start, sounded like a dead battery but always started after a few trys.this was driving me crazy. Did all the electrical fixes from the board , some made thinks better . like not battery not charging . Did the 3 wire thing, success. great charging14+ went the led lights way also. still started crappy.I need a starter (dam, More money more money) with a ton of cash it this I finally had to go the refresh the starter motor fix with a set of brushes and clean and re grease. brushes were backwards the insulated was on the -side not the + side and almost worn to nothing . the fix worked the bees .after all this wind, just wanted to say thanks to all of you for your help.especially Tim Wentzell, Mr. Magic Fingers himself.For his tip he Put on the forum.

Thanks !!!! (and your veryWelcome!)


1) Experience is something you don't get until after you need it.
2) A closed mouth gathers no foot.

Horsepower is an illusory mathematical equation; Torque is REAL, and is the source of all good things in the world.

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?
