I'm trying to resurrect a 1980(?)Everest 500 electro and have a couple of questions.
I heard that if the mfg date says it was made in June 1979, it
would be considered a 1980 model. Is this true? The main issue is the red
positive cable from the battery doesnt connect to anything. One small line
goes to a "fuse" or something, but the main line doesnt connect to a starter.
In fact the starter looks like its missing? Were these things able to be cranked
by starter and the pull cord? (The pull cord is missing to, but i think its in the
housing after the handle pulled off--i'm trying to get that off to check but one
of the bolts stripped
I'm thinking the starter went out and they just started
cranking it manually, after removing the starter for some reason?
I appreciate any advice. I'm beginning to question whether this is a worthy
project after all. I got the sled for a song, but even the windshield is missing
and i'm sure thats not pleasant to be cruising around on below zero days w/o...
