re grounded the alternator to the frame and ran a ground from engine to frame as well, pulled an old trick i know to hook a light bulb up to the volt meter post and then to an ignition on source to kick on the alternator. never thought i would get this on the road again, all the work for a ground i never thought of
It's always the small stuff.
I just ran all new grounds and new ends on my positive cables and that fixed about 90% of all my issues. Saved me a bunch of money from throwing big parts at it that wouldnt have fixed it.
Glad to hear you found the problem with out spending tons of money!
