/ Battery dying or belt slipping? #1
I've got a ym3000. About every 3rd or 4th time I try to start it- it won't really turn over. Like the battery is dead. Even after engine is warmed up. I can switch it off and try again and so far has always started on up. My belt is loose and can't be tightened any more. Could it be slipping enough to be not charging the battery? Wouldn't the engine be running hot if it was slipping that much (it's not)? I've got a new belt but so far have been too lazy to put it on . Battery voltage reads 12.9 when engine is running. Should that be higher? Whaddya think? Put on that new belt, get a new battery or both? Much obliged!!
