I came across this alternator in the shop today and it appears to be brand new was still wrapped in plastic when i found it, no one claims it or knows what it is. If I can find out how many amps it...

Once again the problem was the belt.. still doesn't make sense to me, but anyways its fixed. Now since I can't leave my truck alone does anyone know where i could find a dual alternator bracket for...

Thanks man, are you local or just seen it on the web?

Sorry guys, never got around to the video.
I drove the truck 200 miles to the beach non stop, got around 10-12mpg which is better than I thought it would be running 4.10s and 35s. Didn't have a...

Alternator bolt was sheared off in the head, spend a few hours trying to get it out. I still think the regulator is bad.

I changed the plugs, had one arching on the header, so I fixed that problem, changed the thermostat and anti-freeze, the truck runs great now and stays at 170˚f with the AC on, drove it 200 miles...

No prob man, it's prob a combination of things trying to work them out now.

This truck only has 1500 miles on it since I restored it, new water pump, new fuel pump new radiator, new clutch fan, drivetrain wise everything is newly rebuilt.

I didn't think about this, I will be sure to check it out, seems like a easy fix since I have a after market cooler for the transmission.

So I've noticed in the passed few days since is been hot my truck wants to surge when accelerating and sometimes it acts like it doesn't want to change to 3rd gear. Ive inspected all the vacuum...

I Found that the alternator was slightly out of line, fixed it. Also looking into adding another battery and an Isolator.
Right now the alternator is working fine and doesn't appear to be burning...

Everything was fine last night, this morning when I was leaving for school the alternator belt came off and got cut up by the fan. I'm not sure if the alternator is getting hot and breaking the belt...

Its just what the battery was reading at the time, from constantly starting the motor with out the alternator charging, and driving around for a day with out it charging.
05-30-2012, 08:27 PM
The battery is brand new, just replaced it trying to track this problem down. Cables are fairly new, not worn.
This was a 78 amp factory style alternator. Yes I have a Sound system but its...

Any advice from anyone?

Got my air horn on! I ended up just sticking a little 6 gallon pan cake compressor in my tool box. I love it, sure my neighbors love it too.
Also I'm making a video of my truck and the air horn...

I ordered my solenoid for the horn, got my buddy to let me borrow one of his horns and get my system all set up.
Also I found a old welding tank that will fit under my tool box that I'm planing...

Air Horns are defiantly attention getters.
My family owns a beach house in Myrtle Beach about 15-20 mins away from what everyone around there calls the "strip" or "the main drag," on any given...

Im looking into putting a single air horn on my 85 Silverado. I know a lot of guys with RAMs have them but you hardly ever see a chevy with one. On side note: Yes I know air horns are technically...
