    Special thanks to KMT and the-big-e for a R&R on the ignition switch. Having completed that fix I still have a problem with starting. Some times it do and sometimes it don't. I can always turn the key to on and jump to the starter at the solenoid as a means of starting. Using the switch...

    Won't start
