Horror, LOL. You know you just became a "WTF previous owner did this?" Welcome to the club, refreshments on the table.For those of you following the thread, it's clear the issue is somewhere in the ignition circuit on my 80. I do want to track this down and fix it, but I'd also like to drive my 80 this summer. So to the certain horror of @Rzeppa and @DaveInDenver, I have installed a starter button that activates a relay, sending strong power to the solenoid so it starts every time. If you push the button with no key in the ignition, it will crank but not start. Insert the key, turn to the right, hit the button, and my 80 starts like a champ.
some creative rope routing and you could have your pull cord come right out the same spot as the start button.
And here I'm thinking "Yeah, that's cool, but why not just pop start it like we've always done?" Then I remembered some people foolishly optioned automatics in mini trucks for some unknown reason.some creative rope routing and you could have your pull cord come right out the same spot as the start button.
