    Well, I did go and broke down a mere 2 k from the venue! I stopped in Tea Gardens to go to an ATM and when I got back into the ute, she was dead! The battery has failed before as I use the ute not much and brought a spare battery, as you do! No luck with that one either. Rang the NRMA,he arrived and declared there was not enough volts going the the solonoid as the wiring is so old.He started it with a clip on the battery and a wire to the starter. I forgot the screwdriver trick that I used to do on a 2CV with a problem like that years ago. Anyway, I made it to the venue and enjoyed the day. The ute ran very well otherwise, and got home safe and well and had no trouble starting 4 times after the event. But I will be looking to have a relay (?) fitted as suggested by the NRMA man.
