Hey, y'all.

Hope everyone's been well.

Didn't get much of anything here. Wind was the worse part.

Got a buncha irons in the fire. Been chasin' eagles but I'll practice on anything. Had eagles out the ying-yang. Picked up a new camera week 'fore last 'n they're hidin' from me now.

Right soon the matches'll start again in earnest. Been shut down for huntin' season then weathered out last month.

Be doin' moderator work for an internet eagle cam this season. Historically she lays in early to mid February. The pair is still relatively young, healthy 'n strong, suspect they'll be on schedule. They've rebuilt the nest already. We'll get busy then thru the time the younguns leave in August.

Ennyways, if ennyone's lookin' for me I ain't hard to find. Postin' images on the FB page. It's public. Don't do much else on there but will answer questions.

Thanks for the coffee...I need it.
The jeep wouldn't start Saturday.  I messed with it thinking it was the battery, which was recently purchased (Summer 2015).  Not the battery or cables as far as I can tell.  Gotta get it towed to the local mechanic.  My poor wife had to drive me to work down one of the most dangerous farm to market roads in our area...something I do routinely.  Only four cars passed us...one of which was done safely.  I don't know what these folks are thinking.  We maintain the speed limit, and at the point where they turn off, or I turn...I'm usually about 10 seconds behind them....at least I can still see them.

Cloudy and cold today.  Got the Jeep back yesterday, but the mysterious issue of not starting didn't occur for the mechanic.  She has started about a dozen times since then for me.  I'm not confident that she fixed herself.  She may get traded in on a newer model.  So, if you go to buy a used Jeep, and it is green with an American Flag emblem on the driver's side....buyer beware!

Del,

It just goes "click"... It doesn't even turnover the starter.  When she starts, like she has been doing since paying for the tow truck bill, it is just like it is suppose to be....no drag at all.

Mechanic listed several things it could be...a bad spot on the starter was one of them.  A co-worker suggested cleaning up the grounds...one on frame and one on the engine...to see if that helps.  Right now, since I'm about 30 miles from my local mechanic, and 15 miles in the boondocks, I'm leaving well enough alone!  When I get home is the time to piddle with it.

Any leads are greatly appreciated!  She is almost paid for, and in really good shape...when she starts...

OK whne you went "click" you should have looked at the volt meter and seen if it went down to ) or turned on the dome light and seen if it went clear out, if so, it would mean you were not getting enough voltage. 

If not, then it likely would be a bad starter or the relay.   

Clean the ground cables, esp the other end where it grounds from the battery and where there is one from the engine to the frame, clean that and the connections on the starter.   

If it does it again grab your hammer you carry and crawl under it and beat on the case of the starter and see if that helps.

It is good to beat the starter when someone is holding the ignition switch on start. That is what we had to do to get the suburban to start before the starter was replaced last week.

If it was the Neutral safety switch, it most likely wouldn't click. You don't have to really beat the starter, just tap it with the hammer. I've had several starters that got that bad. Easiest one to deal with was the Taurus, starter was only about a foot behind the front bumper.

No click with the safety switch is right, why I was trying to find out what it does.  Have a similar problem with The Field Marshall and before on The General,  turn the key, nothing happens, I'm in neutral left foot on the brake, right on the gas with my heel, trying to toe the starter as I turn the key. Roll Eyes   Old ingrained habits die hard, learned to drive on a 53 Dodge 1/2 ton when about 12.  LOL    After 10 years of one with a safety switch in the clutch I am doing it less and less.    Grin

And no, a good tap will often work but a good whack makes you feel better.   Tongue
