    Was pulling something and it stalled and now it will not fire back up, the truck is getting power. What could it be?

    Took a look at the firewall and the fusable links and wire all look fine. Nothing is mealted as far as i can tell. Could it just be the starter went out? if so how would i check it out. If you need to know it has a 350 sm465/205 if that matters at all. I was thinking with how i stalled it. i took out somthing to do with the 4spd in it.

    [/ QUOTE ]Can you get it rolling fast enough to push start it ?? Around 25mph, 2'nd gear, key on, dump clutch.

    You only need to have it going about 7mph if you have good tires and solid ground. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
