1963 RR Cloud 3 will not turn over.

Recommended Posts

The car has been sitting many years, with the spark plugs out the engine turns over fast and has spark, with the plugs in the car the engine will barely turn over. The battery is new and the connections at the battery are clean, could it be the starter. I am a newbie at this car.

Thank you

Put a meter on the main wire to the starter and  make sure it is getting 12 plus Vs.   Also, try running a jumper from the negative post of the battery to directly to the starter and try spinning it.   That would indicate a bad ground if it works better.


Otherwise,  might be a tired starter.
