Like I said, the street was perfectly flat, and my driveway is perfectly flat.
I also double checked the oil yesterday, it's perfect!!
Well the new brushes didn't work, still no vac and still won't stay running.
I also burned up the starter with all the screwing around, so now it's completely dead :(
Oh well, it's always something, dropped off 2 starters at the alternator repair shop, hopefully they can get one to work.
