I guess every punch bowl will end up with a turd in it, sooner or later.

In this case, speaking as a registered forum "prima-donna", I say good riddance to Beardo.  Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

We all have our moments.  He's mostly been polite and an interesting addition, I think.  No need for the fit, though, as he seems to have found this forum useful and friendly so far.  Oh well...

Yah.  Your right mattsz.  I was having a rather bad day when I wrote that.

Maybe Beardo was having a bad day too?

Seeing it cranks and starts OK I would not suspect the alternator or its connections or the starter but it appears to be an intermittent fault and so would likely be as Peter said, a fusible link or some connection on the positive supply side of the system.

Both battery terminals and the cable clamps must be free of grey scale though. It it cranks ok at all times then that isnt the problem.

That was my hunch. Seemed a thoroughly OK sort otherwise, and I still hope to bump into him one of those rallies up in Oley one of these Junes.
