Dirt bike starter test
Old quad runner
I’ve been meaning to get this old quad runner going. It’s been sitting around for thirty years or so. I remember it had some kind of electrical problem when I stopped using it. I stopped using it because I didn’t really need it at the time.
The gas tank was dry so I put a bit of fuel in it, then hooked it to the Toyota’s battery and found the quad’s main fuse was melted, so I replaced that.
It turned over the engine but wouldn’t start. I tried some starting fluid in the carb but it didn’t fire which means it’s likely not getting any spark.
I’ll look at that another time. At least I got this far with it. I need to get a new battery for it too.
And I got around to taking the dirt bike starter motor a part again, but I couldn’t find the problem why it doesn’t work. I have a new one ordered but now I’m curious why this one is not working so may look at it more later.
