Update:

1 false (non)start later.  Apparently there are two 39MT starters that cross to "match" the starter that came off my 8-92.  Guess which one I got first.  NOT the one that worked.  Angry   As of last night I can again start the monster.  Only time will tell if the problem is solved or just postponed.

Stay tuned.

Bob of the North, Good luck ! Have you considered moving the batteries close to the starter? Just my 2 cents worth ! And that my friend won't buy a darn thing these days ! BK  Grin




If enough people put on their registrations that they are interested in having a great (the BEST in my opinion) Bus A/C man look at and discuss their A/C's with them I'll invite my A/C specialist to the "TN Fall Bus Bash"


But ya gotta register and put it on the registration form, so I know there is enough interest in it to ask him to take time out of his schedule to come over for a day! BK Grin

I've considered it at great length, sitting in a lawn chair with many beers to aid in my consideration.  But I don't see how I can.  If/when I change gennies it might be an option but the current location of the genset precludes moving the batteries.  The last time I tackled this I went from 1 or 2 months per starter to 18 months per starter.  If I have made a similar degree of improvement then it won't be a problem.  Even if I can stretch it out to 3 or 4 years per starter then I could live with that.
