    Starting issues.

    Just lately I have been experiencing poor starting.

    I suspected the battery but using my newly learned skills with a multimeter it did not look like the battery, 12.9v.

    I called the service department at Newcastle Triumph and they over the phone and my description of the issues thought it may be the starter solenoid and they had one in stock.  A quick trip up to the Toon, a little fettling in the garage and she started bang on the button.

    Job done and feeling good.
    Love, light, and kindness,

    It's nice to have a Service Department that's willing to offer free advice.  :169:
    That seems to be a rare commodity these days.

    Nice job, GarminDave!

    I think if you try to be nice it pays off.  My wife always says "You get more from sugar than salt".  I will probably take some cakes or biscuits in for their tea break.

    Not to rain on the parade here, but : How were the connections to the old solenoid when you removed it ?   Tight ??  Corroded ??

    If you want to defintely prove it was the solenoid,  you can always re-install the old solenoid and see if the problem returns .......

    Sometimes when replacing a part, the real problem is corrected unkowingly and it only seems like the part that was replaced was the problem.  That's been my experience over the years.

    My poor brother-in-law borrowed my car years ago when visiting with my sister and his family and on a road trip thought the ECM failed.  He bought a new one and after he returned the car,  I re-installed the "failed" unit and drove the car for another 4 years with the "failed" unit w/o a problem.   Anyone need a NOS ECM for a 1979 Chysler LeBaron ?

    Oh good....one more thing for me to consider/fret about after I installed a new presumed failing battery. 

    GarminDave, did you hear the relay clicking like with a "bad" or low battery?  I'm presuming the relay in question is the round one immediately in front of the battery in the rubber mount.  I'm still not totally convinced my issue is a bad, new Yuasa battery.
