  1. I tightened down my battery terminals, positive was a tad loose. I will see if it happens again, then head to the grounds and solenoid connections. I have found if I turn the key two or three times in rapid succession that it will go from nothing to cranking. Once it cranks, it starts right up. On a side note, I passed 66,666 miles today....maybe it is just the evil lurking in it. I half expected the odometer to start turning the other way once I hit that mark...lol.
  2. The Service Manual is available, but not the 85-86 parts manual anymore....
  3. I am fighting a very intermittent "turn the key and no crank" issue! Almost made me late for work this morning. Time for some electrical troubleshooting....and I hate electrical troubleshooting!
  4. I'm in need of the '86 Parts Manual. Komeuppance's links in the Newbies Section are not working. Does anyone know where I can find another source for one. I searched, but Google appears to not be my friend today. Any help would be appreciated! Happy Veteran's Day to all our Vets! (it should be every day!)
  5. Not to hijack...well, maybe a little. I have recently experienced a starting issue twice with my bone stock '86. The solenoid does not click or anything. Dash lights come on, but that's about it. The first time it happened, I thought it was because I didn't have the clutch in all the way (that is exactly how it acts when my big boots don't push down far enough). I pumped the clutch pedal back and forth a couple times, turned the key off and on and it starts like normal. Is it common to have the clutch safety switch fail? I have read in this thread ( http://www.starquestclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=88551 )that 88 and earlier cars do not have a safety switch...mine must, because it has never been able to start without the clutch pedal depressed. Any suggestions? It is (so far) a random issue, but it sure leaves a pit in my stomach every time that I turn the key and nothing happens.
  6. I drove it to work today. Had a recent position change at work and lost the company truck (shock to the system, as I have had one since 2005). Now I'll have to alternate between the Starion and the 914. She looks so lonely sitting down there.... http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u307/Sleepin1974/8F8EDDFD-B526-4144-A8B7-1C99474E2461_zpsfkgiebcj.jpg

  9. Put the second big LED light in my garage. What a difference! http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u307/Sleepin1974/B1AC4BB6-EA81-4DBD-B553-9559EF421419_zpssvocu3az.jpg

  11. Not too far from me! Looking forward to some pictures!
  12. Nice! What a difference the paint job made!? That pearl looks great!
