Hearse ride Home and alternator update.
I went to get the Hearse brought home today. We took of the alt and went to Advance to have it checked. Bad was the verdict. We put a new one on, had the wires checked and were all correct, but when we hooked up the positive battery cable, the wire that goes from the battery terminal to the post on the alt started (very light)smoking. Im thinking that maybe the positive cable that goes to the starter has a short. Maybe touched the exhaust or exhaust manifold and is shorting out the alt?
Anyway, we fully charged the Battery and I drove it home without a problem. It drove strong, shifted tight and other than a little floating it cruised excellent. Tons of looks, laughs, stares, thumbs up and even some flirting. <img src="graemlins/mwink.gif" border="0" alt="[mwink]" /> I think its gonna be a cool cruiser. I'll get pics soon. HG
