Ok, so the other day I tried to start my cucv and the starter wouldnt catch on the flywheel so I turned the key back and it kept trying to start! Had to pull a terminal off the batterys to get it to stop and when I tried to reconnect it it would arc bad and the starter would spin again. I thought the starter was bad(I had been having problems with the starter engaging the flywheel before and I found no starter wires grounding anywhere) so I decided to go ahead and do a 12 volt coversion following the site http://www.roscommonequipmentcenter.com/news_notes/nn10.pdf. Got to step 12 where you take the condenser off the pass side alt. and could not see this on my alternator. So figured maybe I just dont have one Got everything done according to the writeup and tried to put on a negative cable and it arcd again and the starter kicks but theres still no key in the ignition. The cables are being hooked up right and I put on a new gear reduction 12volt starter(and put on the bracket that goes to the block this time lol). Im thinking my problem is somewhere in the steering column. I searched but no one with this problem had a diagram of what I should be looking for in the column and how to fix it. The starter relay behind the dash near the gas pedal is new. Just got dark so Im done for today. Also, anyone know about this alternator condensor?? Why dont I have this? My drivers side didnt have it either..
