I have an older Coleman starter. I keep it on a constant trickle charge. When I go to start the kart it appears that my battery is weak and seems to have a hard time turning the clutch. But usually does. I have taken it to two different places and had the battery tested and it tests fine. When I plug up my portable jump start to it and start my kart it will start right up. So I am thinking my battery doesn’t have enough cca or something. I’ve attached pictures of my battery and starter. Ay advice or help would be greatly appriciated. Thanks
Andre, Not too old. Bought it in December. It stays on a trickle charge. I’ve checked the battery water level and it is fine. Is there a different battery I should look at instead of this one? One with higher CCA or just a better one?
What was the amperage rating on your last battery? Maybe you’ve been purchasing batteries that were not powerful enough. Suggest charging your current battery with a charger that’s not a trickle charger. Borrow one from a friend if you don’t have one or ask you gas station.
This might be a good time the consider purchasing a used Coleman mini-starter with a sealed battery. They’re about 18 pounds with the battery.
