It was hot for sure. Wasn't really that bad out in the evening though. You didn't happen to see the odd colored '64, not sure if they said it was convertible or not but a seafoam greyish silver color with big wheels. I had 3 people say they saw it only once driving on the street but not one of them got a picture. I was with a friend with primer black '67 fairlane convertible. I didn't ever go inside the show although a couple friends were going to give me passes. Too hot to wander round there!


I'm going to the lucky eagle show by olympia saturday. Never been there, thought i'd see some dif cars.

I'm going to

Re: No Goodguys this year

my66, i thought of you when i was down there watching cars drive by saturday night. Wonder if you or Jozy/jerry was out there running around. I left for home round 10ish cause it was really boring this year, not at many cruising. So sad.

Sorry you didn't make it! I was in the same place as last year sorta, was across the street at the chevron. Maybe next year, hope you get it all straightened out!

Just cut and paste the link to your youtube video. The board software will do the rest. Like this:

Re: No Goodguys this year

like k4apy said...

top illustration ford oem direct drive starter
and if wired like that, mini starter will only spin up and not engage
since solenoid on starter is not activated to engage gear...

bottom mini starter..
basically with mini, you have constant 12 volt battery lead to starter..
like in picture it utilizes fender solenoid to activate solenoid on starter..
technically you can simplify things and eliminate fender solenoid and run starting/cranking wire directly solenoid on starter, like a GM style starter

Re: No Goodguys this year

This may not be the problem your having.
I was looking at mini starters last month when I thought I had a starter issue. I saw some of them did not use the Ford relay on the fender and were wired straight from the battery to the big lug and a #12 wire from the ignition switch to the solenoid on the starter itself to starter motor and engage the drive into the flywheel. With that type of starter if I came off the original Ford solenoid with the one large wire to the starter and did not use a seperate wire to trigger the engage solenoid on the starter it would only spin as you described. Just a thought to help you troubleshoot.

Re: No Goodguys this year

Been there. PowerMaster was very good when a similar issue occurred with my starter. I worked with customer service and they sent me a different model for free.

I've also had a custom exhaust contact the shift lever on my automatic transmission. The installer fixed that for free too.
