changed clutch assembly and wont start now
i have a 91' ford festiva that recently changed the clutch assembly but after everything got put back
together a ground wire was placed on the starter and then started to smoke and dont start now
Did you have the flywheel off to be surfaced or put a new one on? Somewhere, somehow, you got a hot wire where it should not be, that is if I understand your question. The stater is grounded to the block, does not have a ground wire, only the big 4gauge or whatever it is cable that is hot only while starting. Find out what wire is wrong, the check your main engine fuse, probably a 60 amp. in the box under hood
It sounds as if someone placed a ground wire on the starter and that would be a direct short across the battery. It shouldn't blow any fuses but it could destroy the battery and the battery cables.
Only reason I said what I did is 'cause he said now it won't start.
