Got some of the main power modifications/additions done tonight.
Swapped the old busted alternator out with the new hotness!
First fire, BAM, 14.7 volts, charging......we like....that means it's working.
Swapped the old main battery out for the new, smaller, more efficient battery. Plenty of Cold Cranking Amps to fire the engine, and more than enough power to run the entire vehicle......for good measure we're putting in another one so the system has it's own to rely on.
Did the 'Big 3' upgrade as well......Alternate to Batter Wire, Battery Ground to Chassis, and Battery Ground to Engine......swapped out the baby small stock wire (10 ga and 8 ga) with 0ga and 4 ga where applicable....main big 3 is all 0ga.....which, by the way, is WONDERFUL to run through the vehicle.
Right now the battery is temporarily wired to make sure the vehicle starts and runs correctly, but next I'll be fusing the alternator side, adding the in-line Stinger battery isolator (this is so the rear battery can play the system without running the cars main battery down too low where it wont start), and starting to run the main power wire (also 0ga) through the firewall and to the rear of the car......lots of work still...but we're getting there.
Hope you like....cheers!!
