Re: Even with a good survey, there are many unseen horrors
Actually your house battery's ground should be seperate,I think,and I assume your running light are run off them.. And yes older ,none computer run,mechanical diesels will run once started..actually if it's a battery problem any engine with a alternator/generator will run once started,also your idea of a boost battery may have worked if you had put ground straight to the engine and not tried to boost the battery as that would have been fruitless with a bad ground!......a good way to check for a bad ground ,is run a booster cable from starter battery to block creating a new ground.......Ralph
