Starter: starting the car was a sweat-breaking business before the starter. A procedure by it's own, where you had to be fairly skilled. Cranking the car was done with a cranking rod. The driver would put it into place, use all the strength available, crank the engine and if he's lucky the engine would start after a few turns. If not, he was in for another lesson in body-building. Aside that, when the engine started the driver had to let loose of the rod in time or else he would get a knock in the face. Every time you put the key into the ignition, remember this and enjoy it as a privilege.
If your vehicle is showing symptoms such as dim lighting, "dragging" during engine starts, or frequent dead batteries, then the charging system may be at fault. Although it may seem obvious, the first item to test is the battery itself. A defective battery in an otherwise healthy electrical system can cause any of the above mentioned symptoms. Testing the battery is a simple procedure, and can performed quickly by most auto parts stores, repair shops, dealers, and even some large department stores.
