Q: Possible electrical issue in a 1960 Ford F-350

asked by on

My car won't turn over. I think it's an electrical issue (6V system).

This vehicle being more than 55 years old would require an expert mechanic. You could have a simple battery issue, or more complex problems involving wiring, or starter issues. I recommend that you have a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come by and run a thorough inspection of your truck’s electrical system, for a proper diagnosis.
