GAV leaking

With the air filter removed, and the car not running, the throat of the carb intake is pooling with fuel. I believe my GAV is fully closed so I assume the needle isn't seating fully.

Batt not holding charge

My two year old 6v is losing it's charge. On the bench it will drop from 100% to 75% in 24 hours with no load.

Is it shot? Seems to have enough water.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Carl

Re: how to bench test a coil??

WooHoo!! She started and ran perfect - oh what a sweet sound.

One thing I found, the secondary terminal on the coil and the wire from it were rusted. I think that lead to a hard start and my...

They are clean and dry. Had a little carbon soot but I cleaned them.

Re: how to bench test a coil??

I HAVE spark! ...but it still wont fire. Not even with a good dose of starter fluid.

Hmmm, back to the drawing board.

Re: how to bench test a coil??

Thanks Larry,

Not sure if I fully follow you but this is what I have so far.

Re: 6v charging issue

Hi Patrick,

Sorry, I don't know the charge rate. When the car is in use the battery stays well charged.

Tell me more about the parasitic alternator, I had no idea. How does that happen? What...

Re: 6v charging issue

Update.

I think my charger indicator is funky, it charged all day and never moved much past 50% but when I started the car it turned over as normal. It didn't start, but that because I think I...

Re: 6v charging issue

Good questions. I was driving it around in the fall, I guess that's when it got it's last full charge. It sat all winter with the battery attached and when I went to start it, it was pretty drained,...

Re: 6v charging issue

And I just checked, my cells are covered with water. Iím going to let it charge some more and keep an eye on it.

Thanks all!

Re: 6v charging issue

Does the voltage change during charging or the amperage? Which is a better test to see if the batt is charging?

Re: 6v charging issue

In 6v mode the charge can only be set to 6amps. For 12v it can be set to 6amp or 2amp. I will check the cells, but they certainly had fluid in them, from 1/2 to 3/4 best I could tell.
