Need some help and advice
It has been a good long while since I have been here, Mother nature has not been good to me ( two Strokes) and my truck has been stuck in the back yard idle and about the last thing on my able to do list, has sat there for over a year without running. Yesterday I could stand it no more so I went out to try and start it, no surprise when I found two dead batteries and replaced them, then I changed the fuel filter and gave it a spin, nope, starter dragging real bad for about three turns and no more checked the relay, good voltage, checked the solenoid it makes a pretty solid pop when power is to it and again good voltage, got out my trusty BFH and gave the starter a few light taps, tried to turn over slowly but then stopped, got a new starter on the way.
Is there anything else I should try and do to it or need to do to it?
Any one tried to revive one that has sat idle for a good long while?
Any advice would be appreciated
