Re: (ET) Need a bottom mount steering bracket for E-10
Have you wiggled stuff and tightened stuff? How about the seat switch?
You could put a voltmeter on the motor terminals, start it and check the
meter when it don't start, see if trouble is external to the motor or
Troubleshooting is, essentially, split the job in half. test both
halves. Then split the bad part in half, test. Doing this you will
eventually come down to one part and it's wiring. That's the bad part.
Replace or fix it.
MYGAWSH never heard of a busted bracket down there. Musta happened when
they pushed her off the truck at the dump. (-;
