Help, 351W won't start!
My 351W in my '70 stang stopped working altogether. Here's a summary of what happened.
It always had difficulty starting. Around 3-4 cranks to get it to turn over. It progressively got worse, and then it finally stopped working. One day, I kept trying to get it to start, cranking it a bunch of times, and the solenoid started smoking... So I immediately ran to my classic mustang supplier and got a new start solenoid and stuck it in. Sadly, however, my Windsor seems to have died.
Things to keep in mind: someone working on my car stole my brand new battery and replaced it with an incredibly old one. My resort is to hook the old battery up to a fully charged battery through jumpers, but it still doesn't start. Old batteries don't fry solenoids do they..
Can I get some ideas as to why my 351 isn't starting? I need as many ideas as I can get.
