Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: No go starter

I've been working on a T that has been converted to 12 v. It has a solenoid and newer starter switch instead of the normal T starter switch. The starter worked fine for a bit, but now nothing. The solenoid clickes in, good voltage to starter terminal, but nothing from starter. What should I check first?

Your wallet

After checking your wallet, try grabbing the wire that connects go the starter post and wiggle it. If you can wiggle it quite a bit, more than likely the solder on the bus bar has come undone. That is a very common problem among T starters.

Also, have someone hold down the starter button and then try wiggling that post. If that does the trick and it kicks on, then your bus bar will need to be repaired. I think this probably causes 90% of starter failures.

Let me know what this does.

Resoldering the bus bar isn't actually all that difficult, if you know how to solder.

I would see if the hand crank is there and use it as for the starter call Ron Patterson and get a rebuilt unit
