Bad motor winding or bad brushes, I think. Possibly some internal corrosion, but I didn't feel like spending the afternoon taking it apart.
Plugged the switch in and pressed the button for one second to test before I bought the rig. But that's all it runs for - one second. Then nothing. Switch is good, Solenoid is good. Fooling around with it for half an hour, I got it to spool in about five feet of cable under no load.
Also, when I spooled out enough wire, I could see that there's a kinked/frayed spot halfway down the cable.

BTW: If you want one, the coupon in the HF flyer is $50 less than their "labor day sale" price. Good to the end of the month.

YJ-92 Finally added TJ flares to go with the 33s. I had to test them out so I did Cleghorn Trail in the morning.
Awesome day on the trail!!

Monster93 Just ordered my Dana 60's front and rear with 35 spline axles and Detroit Lockers, very excited, 4 weeks out but patiently waiting.

Now I need to re-do the side windows. The glass is good but not attached too well on one side and out on the other. Anyone got any tips on doing this?

shelby987 Completely unglamorous....but I finally traced my turn signal issue to my turn signal switch, and my YJ can finally pass inspection and be street legal again!

jpmi23 Finally got the doors off. Goo gone on the nasty weather strip, and the next generation Jeepers learned all about white lithium grease.

I took off track and sway bars... Much better. I fabricated a winch bumper out of my stock bumper and installed the winch and lights.

Cameraman Changed trans fluid to royal purple 75w 90. Shifts easier and runs quieter.

Also had a noise that sounded like a plastic bag blowing under the body. A plastic piece on the air cleaner box had come loose. Pop rivet it back on and all is quiet again.

TigWizard Let my 15 year old son drive it around the neighborhood (not ready for traffic yet). He did surprisingly well. He only stalled it once, wasn't too heavy on the clutch. I'd rather have him stall it than ride the clutch. He just needs more practice, and I think it won't be long until I'm driving the van again! Or looking for another jeep for me! It might just be in my head, but I think there are noises the rig makes that can only be heard from the passenger seat!
