    12 or 24 VOLT How do i know?

    I have a used 12 volt that is for sure good and like i say the truck is now wired 12v so i may as well try it before going back. Besides the only 24starter i saw new was $900.

    12 or 24 VOLT How do i know?

    No. I did the 12 volt conversion and found out that someone had changed a few wires but not everything. After making the mods starter will not crank. Just clicks. I am pretty sure it is a 24volt starter but some wiring had been charged to 12 but not all. I kinda quit looking here when people...

    12 or 24 VOLT How do i know?

    The problem is i did not know if things were incorrect or not. You are obviously a way better cucv mechanic than me. I assumed that it was correct because the previous owner said it ran 15 years ago.

    What people fail to understand is. I am not necessarily trying to change it. I am trying to figure out if someone has. I just want to start the thing.

    MUCH HELP THANK YOU! Batts were hooked to 24 buss. There was literally no starter wire only the small purple. I prob should have checked here before willy nilly hooking stuff up. I think I have a 350 starter . Will check and try tomorrow.

    Thanks Richingalveston. Both Alts are still hooked up. The only evidence of wire tampering is someone hooked the glow plugs to a new solenoid. I feel like the batts were hooked parallel accidentally. It will not crank on 12 will on 24 but tries to catch fire. lol The starter to me looks like...
