well that shot a week of hunting.
 
About 5 days ago I got into my truck to go to mcdonalds. IT was dead. I charged the battery and it started.
a dayago it did it again. I jumped it today since it was out front to far from a outlet to charge. It started up. I figure my battery is shot. I went out to napa to have them check it. Not the battery the starter. So now i am down tillsunday when i get paid. Figure bymonday i will have it fixed. Which means no hunting till tuesday. ERR i had planned to go today but did not want to get stuck out in the middle of no where.
HECK i traded my 85 in so i did not need to worry about this crap. Guest i just need to buy a new truck. Could be worst it could have been a rod through the block.

Nosir. You need a bfh. Take a hammer with ya. When it won't start, give the starter a good whack. It will start right up.
I used to be a GM technician and this trick saved me from pushing lots o cars into the shop

All you need is a hammer, that shoudl get the celinoid spining again. Sounds like its sticking. GM starters are easy to fix with a hammer.

Amen, I thought this was BS when I was younger, sure enough when my starter went out in college, i tried it and it worked like a charm. Have done it to friends suv's as well. Nothing like a dead car to ruin a hunt! Good Luck!

I use to work for a tractor company and was the shop gopher. Whenever things would get busy they let me be a mechanic. Around the shop we had a saying if aint running get a bigger hammer.;)P.S. Tim changing a starter should take 30 minutes top on most domestic trucks.

You said exactly what I was thinking! Think we should give him the benefit of the doubt and think he was going for someone else?
