Got my booster fan and hoses hooked up and ready to wire up the relay. Next is to get the engine seal installed, and then connect all the wires in the cluster and lube the speedo cable.

Well, I've been having an issue with the bus not starting after sitting for a few days with no start, an the battery disconnected. It appears to be a bad or dying battery, and I'll probably just end up replacing it anyway because it's about 4 years old. But as I started to think more and do a little research I found that the problem may lie in the wiring and/or the starter solenoid.

Here's what happens - I have about 12.5V on the battery, I turn the key and I hear the fuel pump run, but the starter does not turn over. I put my charger on the battery and give it more voltage and the starter turns over, and it starts and runs fine. I short the big terminals and the solenoid kicks out and starter spins.

After doing some research I found that due to oxidation of the copper wiring I may have too much resistance in the wiring from the ignition switch (which I already replaced) to the starter solenoid, so I am not getting 12V to the solenoid and the Bendix gear won't kick out. So I pulled all the wires off the starter terminals and used my favorite new-found tool...CRC electrical contact cleaner...to clean all the connectors and terminal posts on the solenoid.

Now the terminals and connectors are shiny, and I seem to be getting the proper voltage to kick the Bendix out and start the bus. I'll test it out tonight after letting it sit for a day, and hopefully I won't need to tear into the starter and clean and lube the solenoid (which I should do anyway).

Yeah I go tired of using fine grit sandpaper to clean up those terminals :banghead: This stuff works magic!

Although it didn't seem to fix my starting issue I thought I had licked. I pulled the battery out, and dropped it on the ground a little too hard, and the fricking bottom corner busted right open, leaking battery acid all over the floor. :banghead:

Cleaned up, but now I need a new battery. I think that one was shot anyhow, so a trip to Costco tonight and I'll have a new one.

Lately I've also been working on the cluster lights, indicator, and turn switch. I rewired the cluster so all the lights now work and signals flash etc. but I need to add a couple of bulb holders and bulbs that are missing.

My turn switch is busted - it flashes fine but the plastics inside are messed up and broken. So I have a new setup hopefully coming next week and that should take care of that problem.
