Hello Fellas an Felleressesss ess !
It's been a while, still got the Thunderbolt an it was fine till recently but it's started burning a wire out from the Reg/rec An yes the dreaded click click even though the battery is fully charged an all that stuff Urgh ! So it won't start.. hence I am in need of a mobile electrician or someone who knows what they are doin Please cos the baseball bat in the corner of the shed is lookin mighty tempting at the moment !!!

What does your battery voltage drop to when you crank it?

Are all your earth straps in place? Are the contact points clean?
