I think he is still having problems with the alternator feeding power to the coil side of this ignition switch.
Hi Caseman and Rodster
No I didn't change the starter over to 12 volt cause the old one works fine (Normally) I am going to look at it tonight when I get home from work (if it stops raining
). I am going to check my theory of maybe I have grounded the starter cable against the body of the starter when I tightened up the starter stud. I hope its that easy cause I put new 4 gauge cables on it. It makes sense since the starter suddenly won't turn over and the cab els are heating up real fast.
If its not that then I will try Caseman's idea of removing the starter and bench testing it. If it needs rebuilt I think I read somewhere that you can have them rewound for 12 volts.
I'll keep you guys updated on my progress.
