strange starting issue at the key switch
the 84 scramber w/258 i have been working on has been having some starting issues and im hoping you all can help.
basically what happens is this,,, i turn the key to the start possition and it cranks and doesnt fire and when i give up and release the key from the start possion is fire and runs perfectly. this happens weather i crank it for 2 seconds or 10 seconds, wont fire until i start the release the key front start.
strange thing is this, it only does this when its warmed up, if its a cold start it works just as it should ( it will fire when im holding the key in the start possition ) ..
there is another twist here,,,
if i start this thing up after its been sitting over night or something it will idle fine on the driveway then suddenly just die. so once this happens i go to start it and thats when the key switch issues comes about. i recently swaped the stock cab out to the howell efi set up and it still does this.
could it be thats the ignition switch is bad? does any of this add up to something anyone can think of? im thinking of installing a new ingnition switch thing,,, i have read that its on the bottom of the column or something. does anyone know a good place to buy one?
thanks in advance
