    Default Remote Starter Button

    After working under the bonnet on the 505 on the weekend I was wondering if there might be some gadget available to turn the engine.

    Is there an easy way to bypass the ignition with a switch or is it necessary to turn the ignition key to an on position before using a switch to crank?

    To be able to crank the motor from the engine compartment would be most handy. Are such switches available commercially ?

    not sure on 505 but 99% of cars can have the motor cranked by the use of the starter motor. make the wire that comes from ignition to your starter active with momentary switch. presto.

    whatever you do though dont stand in front of the car when testing it.

    Much better that you put a socket on the nut on the nose of the crank and turn it with a ratchet wrench... more control that way.

    Otherwise, to make up what you describe, take the lead from the ignition switch to the starter off at the starter end, just pull it off the spade joint...

    Make up a wire with a switch in it that has the regular fitting to go on a spade fitting at one end and perhaps a clip at the other to put on the positive terminal of the battery... hook it up and press the button when you want.

    With the manual way, getting enough revolutions to test the compression or to prime oil galerries might be a problem.

    But I agree ratchet wrench is the way to go.

    Thats settled then, the ratchet wrench method is the way to go.
    All that wiring change sounded too involved anyway.

    Oh, "don't stand out the front when testing" sounds like good advice...
