I Got a Short Story For Ya

Its a story that is true and it has a question for you all to answer if you care to take a guess . Or maybe it wont be a guess ,,maybe you have experienced what I am about to tell a tale on myseft about that has happened to you also..

This story is about Me and my 1956 Chevy short box step side truck I had way back in 1962 or so. It was a six cylinder engine with a 4 speed tranny including granny gear..

I went to work one day ( I was working for a guy who had this little saw mill and I off bared the head rig for him and togeather we cut logs into lumber . The mill was out of town in the country some 3-4 miles I guess or so , and I would some times go to town at noon to the hamburger joint to get lunch .
So on this one day around noon the guy that owned the mill had a load of lumber to take to have plained and that left me all alone until he came back . So like I was telling you I did go to town sometimes and on this day thats what I decided I would do .


I went out and got into my pickup and it wouldnt start. I had a almost dead battery , and it wouldnt turn the engoine over fast enough to get it going . I didnt have another battery or a charger .

Here I was alone no way to shove the truck down any hills to clutch start it ,,so I what I did that day to start my truck is something that by me telling this story through the years to quite a few folks has told me that besides my "Ol Pappy" ,, and maybe 2 others have ever done what I did on this day that started my old pickup and allowed me to drive away to town for a burger for lunch.

Anyways this all I have ever heard of doing it..so just maybe I am about to hear of another from you that has done this and can answer my question ..


Question is how did I go about starting the pickup ? I will check in later and see if any has come up with the answer.. GP

My guess is that you used the generator on your truck to help you start it.

You opened the hood and let the sun shine on the battery. This warmed up the inons and gave them enough positive chare your battery had just a little more CCA's
