Well, finally got the 79B on the road after a long winter hibernation. Took
it for a short run Saturday and a long drive on Sunday. Everything went
great, car ran well with no problems. That is until I wanted to take my
neighbor for a ride, later on Sunday eve. I turned the key with confidence
only to hear "click,click,click" at the starter. Damn!
I tried again Monday morning only to hear the same thing.
A bit of history:
- freshly charged battery (9 months old, but inactive last 4 months, I think
- lights dim drastically when solenoid clicking ( I assume power is getting
- new starter solenoid last July
Any help appreciated, ( I'm sure this has been a FAQ) as I'm not too sure
where to start to troubleshoot the problem.
