Well, then you might want to try the 12V auto starter at some future date and 
after confirming with someone who knows what I am talking about. it still won’t 
fix this immediate problem.

I assume the flywheel is 12v since it is a one year only 12v tranny, hence my 
extreme irritation withn one individual in Ennis...

Change 6V stuff to 12V. OK, vintage. Got it. you might still want to look into 
a starter for an automatic. But wait. Do you still have a 6V flywheel? Never 
mind. I don’t think I could keep a true vintage bus on the road.

I want to keep the Bus a stock as possible so I went 6v. Change out what?

Why not 12V? Do you not have to change out with 8V?

I agree. I was having trouble starting it when I first got it (it was the 
bushing) so I opted for an 8V. The 8v battery has more cranking amps and I want 
my lights to be as bright as possible.

  Well, I’ll put this out there, although I don’t know if it applies. I was 
dealing with the whole starter bushing thing until someone told me to use a 
starter for an automatic transmission. I fits and works and does not need a 
bushing. I think your problem sounds completely electrical, since you say that 
your starter won’t spin. My two cents.

Oh, and why an 8V battery? I never even heard of that.

It started last weekend and has now gotten worse. I had to get push started out 
of a tire shop on Saturday and 
I thought I'd had it fixed yesterday but had to get push started out of a show.

The starter won't turn. I removed the starter and figured the bushing was the 
problem again. The bushing came out with the starter. I put another one in and 
still nothing, I put in the old starter and after 5 attempts is started fine. 
Now nothing. Robb has suggested soldering the ends of the wires to get a good 
contact through the screw terminals on the ignition switch and headlight 
switch. I'm gonna try that tonight.

I am wondering if it is possible the 8v battery is wreaking havoc with the 6v 
switches? Has anyone had a bushing come out with the starter? I never had and 
am concerned about that as well.
