'82 SC starting issue....


Recommended Posts

Ok, it always starts but used to 'on the button' every time. Now it never ever starts first time and frequently not 2nd time either, but will turn and turn freely without a hint of firing, but next key turn will make it start instantly again. Must still have fuel pressure as it happens after every switch off, so where should I start looking? 

Thanks, Chris.

Ignition switch? The second turn creates the necessary contact? Perhaps try turning the key just that little harder or maybe turn it once for just a moment and then again and see if it starts. Just thinking out loud.

Good shout Phil..... Was years ago but I THINK I have changed it. Still could be faulty of course!

Maybe rig a test wire to the starter to see if it’s getting power when you experience the non-start?

Edit: apologies - ignore me, I thought it wasn’t cranking.

It's turning over but not firing.
