Hey everybody, I'm new too and I need sone help ASAP. I'm workin on an 85 shark with a guy. He told me that one if his friends tried jumpstarting it one day. And accidentally put the wrong clamps on the wrong terminals. And it started smoking. So he took them off and tried starting the car and it immediately started smoking.. He turned the car off and tried starting it a week later when he replaced the battery now it won't start. We haven't tried starting it again so I'm not sure if he just fried the alternator or if he blew a ground or a fuse.. I'm trying to buy this car but he wants to fix it before he hands it over. Nice guy. I know a little about bimmers as I used to have an 85 325. But this has me stumped.. Any ideas?? Thanks
