Coming out of a job interview today, my '67 Imperial wouldn't start. Grr. (Yes, I made sure to wear a suit and tie while driving the Imperial. I figure it's really the only appropriate attire ) Solenoid clicked, but no turn. Got it jumped, and made it to the gas station, where it started a bit slow, but normally. From there, I went to my local garage, who said the battery was fine, but the alternator was a bit lazy. This guy replaced my voltage regulator for me when I first got the car, and didn't have anywhere to work on it. It looks like an alternator is about $25-$30. I'm guessing that part of my problem is heat: it was hot, and old wires, corrosion here and there, all made for added resistance in the circuit. I also have one of the original-style starters, not the mini-starter. So what are the recommendations? Replace alternator, for a start. Is it worth getting new/bigger wires to go to the starter? Do starters wear out by drawing more current before failing? Having replaced the voltage regulator in the last 8 months, should it be replaced with the alternator, or is it totally unrelated?
