Mar 8, 2011 update on P71's 1973 AMC Javelin


update image

Whilst chasing down the still no-start issue it was pointed out that grounds could be an issue. The Javelin’s starting circuit has the negative battery cable going straight to the engine (which has been replaced) and a ground strap going from the engine to the frame (which hasn’t, due to a seized bolt). So I added this ground strap from the terminal to the frame for now. (I will find a better spot for it later). I also made a permanent ground strap for the starter solenoid’s 5th post, as the original neutral safety switch no longer works, which is what was preventing the solenoid from engaging.
