    Thoughts on the cause

    We need a few more clues Herb.

    Did the other electrical devices, radio, lights, gauges etc. come to live when the master switch was turned on?

    Did you hear the solenoid click when you turned the key to start?

    Did the engine not turn at all, or did it turn too slow to start?

    Did the engine turn over normally but fail to start?

    What sounds did you hear when you tried to start it?

    How did you finally get it started to move it?

    Folks,

    I purchased a Beech Sport (75)(150hp) several months ago and have
    been trying to fully understand all of the unique aspects and quirks
    associated with this one. It has been a joy to fly and seems to be
    in great condition but Saturday after flying for over an hour and a
    half it gave me a little trouble. I shut down for fuel and could
    not get it to turn over for the restart. It acted as if the battery
    had crapped out but this is a new battery. Today I went out to
    figure out what to do and it started right up. I checked the
    breakers, I hit the lights to make sure that it was charging etc
    but can't seem to figure out why it would barely turn over once it
    was hot the other day.

    I've started it before after shutting down for fuel and never had
    this problem. Are there any guessers/trouble shooters out there
    that have seen this problem before? I may need to look at the carb
    heat as it doesn't seem to be working properly but that shouldn't
    have been a cause for a slow cranking engine. Any thoughts? I am
    out of Carroll County (KDMW) so could take it to a trusted person
    for evaluation if anyone knows of one near by. I just would hate to
    drop a bundle on a quess and seek type approach to a possible one-
    time concern. Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Herb

    Thoughts on the cause

    If it were a car, I'd say replace the starter. I've
    had plenty of bad starters that worked find when cool,
    but not when hot...

    Thoughts on the cause

    I'd say a connection somewhere that's getting hot and separating. Could be
    a bad starter too as mentioned before.
    A voltmeter will find it

    Folks,

    I purchased a Beech Sport (75)(150hp) several months ago and have
    been trying to fully understand all of the unique aspects and quirks
    associated with this one. It has been a joy to fly and seems to be
    in great condition but Saturday after flying for over an hour and a
    half it gave me a little trouble. I shut down for fuel and could
    not get it to turn over for the restart. It acted as if the battery
    had crapped out but this is a new battery. Today I went out to
    figure out what to do and it started right up. I checked the
    breakers, I hit the lights to make sure that it was charging etc
    but can't seem to figure out why it would barely turn over once it
    was hot the other day.

    I've started it before after shutting down for fuel and never had
    this problem. Are there any guessers/trouble shooters out there
    that have seen this problem before? I may need to look at the carb
    heat as it doesn't seem to be working properly but that shouldn't
