Momma is still making noise about moving to DC. Mid '90's and stormy there this week. Bleh. I like the cool green of the PNW. Though I could literally do a coast to coast road trip in the DL. That in itself might justify moving. About 3000 miles +/-. If it's not winter, I think I would pack my tent, take a few weeks, and run across Hwy 2 or 94 so I could see my dad in Michigan. Maybe tint the windows. I better get on this...

I've got the STS bushings in and a Homer short shifter coming. Are there any other bushings in the shifter? It's pretty loose.

She's only truly bad when cold. Although the noise in 5th gets pretty annoying after a while.
Ya hop in your time machine and go back to 1995, and that's what they'll be.

The reman alternator is in! While pushing the four new bushings in I found that there was only one in the adjuster tube where it bolts to the front of the block. Found a longer bolt and we're golden. Fired it up and the voltmeter was a bit higher than usual. Hmm. The DVOM says 14.6v. Sounds good to me. Pretty sure the head lights are brighter. Probably wishful thinking, but that would really be a nice. Plus, chicks dig small alternators and fused batteries circuits.

Just not my deodorant apparently...

14.6v isn't too high is it? I can't recall what the top end of the normal range is.

Thx.

Thx. I'm hoping a little more juice will help my slow wipers (with good ground to motor).

Can't wait to see you guys at the show. When you meet the Mrs., be sure to tell her that I'm a very serious guy on the forum...

Carl, would you want to write us a script so we say the right things about how serious, cool, and what a big shot you are on the boards? I'd hate if I didn't do you justice.

Hmm. On second thought, this may be one of those situations were the less that is said the better.

That's in the good range for charging. Should be around 14 volts at idle if it's charging. The amount of charging voltage will depend on the state of the battery and how hot it is outside. Hotter = less charging voltage generally.

It's true. Made a clean spot. Threw off my whole "patina."

Or maybe it was Harland.

Intermittent wipers.

Raise the stalk for the front and nothing happens. Switch the rear to the left and nothing happens. I saw that IPD sells a relay and it got me thinking. Where is this relay located? Does the one relay control both wipers?

Thx.
