1913 Hudson 6-54 problem with starter electric

Recommended Posts

Hi to all!


After the winter I wanted to start our 1913 6-54 roadster, I charged the batteries, they have 6.36 volts each. So fully charged. Wenn I press the button between the seats, then depress the clutch pedal, the starter not start to turn the engine. So I checked the voltage at each of the batteries when I pressed the button ( the voltage drops just a bit 0.02 volts ) when I depress the clutch pedal to turn the starter, 3 batteries drop to 6.25 - 6.20 volts. But one of them... ( it is #4 ) starts to boil and the voltage rises to 16.5 volts! 

Has someone an idea what the problem could be?
