Must of been 20 years ago, I managed to do a pinkie ring, ratchet, bare metal combo short while changing a water pump on a small block Chevy.TexasTrooper said:Removed the starter today. After I removed the last bolt holding the starter on, it broke loose, and sparks and smoke at the battery.
Forgot to disconnect the battery.
Iv'e always heard the stories. And I always thought, "I would never be that stupid".
The insulation for the negative cable coming off the battery is completely melted.
Time for a beer. Gonna take another crack at it tomorrow.
