    Hello,

    The starter in my 78 Bus had the classic “hot start” problem (turn the key and nothing when heat-soaked), so I installed a hot-start relay over a year ago and have had no problems – until yesterday.After a ten-minute drive (from cold), I tried to restart the Bus and got a small click and then nothing. I found the hot-start relay 20A fuse blown. (The fuse is in the circuit from + to the relay to the solenoid.) I replaced the fuse and it immediately blows when I try to engage the starter.Should I replace the entire starter, or maybe just the solenoid is the issue?

    Please help

    I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
