i had constant problems for years w/ my '87,,,turn on to start up and .... nothing. No clicks grind or whirrr.
Battery checks out good.
Other times I get in & it starts right up.
One day it wont start,,,,a mechanic friend is looking at it with me,,, and finally says,, pull the tilt steering wheel down.
I did.... it starts every time now.
He's about 5'6,,, I'm 6',,, I put the tilt wheel all the way up. He didnt.
