when working on your car please remember to take the proper precausions for your own personal safety I could sit and list many mistakes that people have done over the years but heres a few classics to learn by. 1. mate jump started his car from his wifes car, wifes car running when connected jump leads on car battery that was flat, large spark from jump leads resulting in the flat battery exploding thus throwing acid into his face and eyes....3 months off work...nasty! ( i will cover the correct way to jump start a car later, the safer way) 2. iv'e been told this one a few times now, remember gold/silver jewelry conducts electricity very well, so remember that when sticking your hand on an electrical item such as a starter motor like this poor sod did, remove it, his wedding ring shorted out on the battery feed to the starter and welded itself there. as you could imagine the ring was glowing red hot and he couldn't move his hand away....i was told he lost the use of that finger! A FEW GOOD POINTERS. Always remember to fuse an electrical item as close to the power source as possible! electricity can kill you, yes even a 12 volt system! poorly wired/insulated cables can cause fires! Im sorry but it has to be said that neither the club or i can be held accountable for any repairs you make to your car and any information you get from this site is your responibility to check that the information given is correct.
