    Default 2CV Iskra Starter to paris Rhone connection ?

    Im putting in a Paris Rhone starter to replace the Iskra

    The big + wire and a small yellow wire go on the + terminal , got that OK


    Now

    The other small yellow wire on the Iskra , does that go on the spade terminal of the paris Rhone?

    The Iskra does not have a spade terminal

    I'm confused. How does a starter motor have more than two connections. You have the main battery power feed, the solenoid power feed...... How can there be another (unless you have to manually wire a solenoid earth wire in ... which is weird way of doing things). Where does the wire go if you trace it back. 12volts or earth?

    +1. It seems you followed my Two Basic Rules for Electricity:
    1) You have to hook it up
    2) You have to turn it on.
    Violate either of these two rules, and no amount of head scratching or cursing will fix your problem.

    You forgot step 3 where you jump around swearing like a lunatic because all of the smoke just escaped from the wiring.... and it's now just one big molten mess

    I mention the Two Basic Rules- I hadn't said anything of all the corollaries....

    I try not to do the jumping and swinging any more- I'm too old. too mature and too fat to do that. Far easier to simply do it right the first time.

    Step #4 is extinguishing the fire. This at least confirms that your battery is good.

    The connections made sense when I could look at the back of the thing , its a little hard bending over , in a dark garage , seems OK cranks slower than Iskra , we shall see

    Was the Iskra a geared reduction starter? They seem to spin a lot faster than the big old non-geared reduction type It's not exactly a huge engine it's trying to crank ... I'd have thought a weeny little ride on mower starter would be adequate

    still has to be turning over quicker than using the crank handle


    BTW why is it called a crank handle, because you get cranky when you use it???
