Well, first off I am new to this forum so I better introduce myself. My name is Adam and I am tackling my first car project, a 1950 mercury 4 door. My question I have is that when I hook up the 6 volt battery (positive ground) the starter just spins over but the car won't start. I reversed the pos/ground cables and the car would start, although the starter turns over very slow. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks, Adam ps. My loggin minncat was a carry over from a caterpillar site. I had a few 1930's cats but my wife and kids didn't care for them all that much! I'm looking forward to including the family on the car restoration. They think it's pretty cool.
