Alright so i've been at it for days now. I can't seem to start my engine
properly. If anyone has any knowledge in Perkins
Prima engines I would really appreciate your input. this is what's happening:
turn key, wont start.
hot wire it at the solenoid and it starts, when i do this the alternator
doesn't charge the battery
. and the alternator
light doesn't come on at start up or while its running.(I've changed the voltage regulator
on the alternator with no w/out success)
trace the positive wire coming off the switch on the engine
panel all the way to the starter solenoid and there is voltage in it (including another relay behind the engine).
what i can figure, there is a negative in the system somehow connecting the alternator and starter, or there is another relay i can not find. ANY HELP IN THIS WOULD BE REALLY GREAT!
