Thinking of replacing the four-year-old Lucas battery on my 1951 Riley, I removed it and replaced it, cleaning the posts and cable ends in doing so. The cure was immediate—no new battery is required after all! The present-day fixing of the leads by means of a flimsy screw is perhaps prone to this kind of trouble, and a cheek here may save come other reader from wasting his money. As the starter consumes some 100 amperes, a bad contact anywhere In the circuit can give the same effect as a dud battery.
