I am having a problem with my 1960 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham, and hope to get some insight from my fellow HAMBers I have only recently purchased this vehicle, and it is in with the mechanic being made ready for a roadworthy. The front suspension rubbers and ball joints have all been replaced (ball joints were the originals!), as well as the rear control arm bushes, which were barely there. Anyway, on a number of occasions I have started the engine and the starter has not disengaged after starting. I can switch the ignition off and take the key out, however the starter continues to crank over. This is not good! The only way to stop it is to disconnect the battery. One of these occurrences totally fried the starter motor so I sourced a reconditioned unit and had it fitted. Speaking to the mechanic today, the starter is still not disengaging sometimes. My question is how likely is it for the ignition switch to be causing this? I can get another ignition switch, but just wanted to check if this is a realistic potential solution.
