I can forget about asking for anything for Christmas this year. I just got carried away on Ebay. The listing had about 8 pictures that look really good and the seller stated it is OEM off an origional 53 and had no scratches or dents before it went to the plater's. He had 100% feedback and says it is absolutely flawless.
We will see. Keep your fingers crossed for me. It scares me to death to buy chrome I can not fondle before I buy.

Worked on fitting the 7 piece trunk pan kit in the Malibu. I want to get the floor in and the gas tank usable so I can get the plastic gas can out of the passenger compartment.
I also got a set of control arms to clean, paint and build up to swap in. I have ProThane urethane bushings coming tomorrow and I'll get new Moog ball joints from NAPA. They probably won't get installed until after the first of the new year.

Check all the ground wires. Almost sounds like a loose ground, with the bump symptom.
A faulty ground could cause the backfeed Jester is talking about. Power from the alt is gonna go somewhere and it can back feed thru positive wires to find a ground and keep a circuit open.
Older Chevy pickups were famous for that. Once the wimpy ground wires on the box failed, all sorts of crazy things happened with lights, both on the box and dash indicators.

|Dave57210||Sounds like a loose connection in the main harness plug where it goes through the firewall|

It is a Diesel I think it will run without a battery or alternator
but requires power for kill switch,,i went back to shop it starts runs fine and everything works as it should cant find problem unless it is Not working ,
forgot to mention ,,coming back from Nashville last night in the rain ,when I would hit a hole or bump in the road my wipers defrosters and lights would come on for a few seconds then blink a few seconds then go off and stay off unti; I hit another bump,

|Newmster||If you cut power supply to the Alt, how does it keep feeding the system exactly? Is it because of its ability to be generating the charge?|
