Re: Comanche sliding window rubber source?

The Scout2 sliding windows probably use the same channel. Let us know if you find something off list.

Re: tire question

You won't know till you try. Best bet might be a smaller older shop.

Re: tire question

I would use it for a spare if the bead does not leak.

Re: Improving T-18 shifter throw?

Experiance, or change to a T-19 where reverse is next to 4th. My wife used to hit reverse when going to 3rd a lot. The T-19 is a lot quieter and has a syncro for 1st gear too. Mine came behind a...

Re: Alternator problem 10si

Also at 500 rpm engine speed a 37 amp 10si puts out a rated 12a the 61 amp puts out 8a. That's a 50% difference. At 650 rpm the output is the same.

Re: Ammeter amp rating?

Adding a shunt on the gauge will reduce the meter reading. If bolting to the terminals on the gauge be careful that it does not get so hot as to damage the gauge or start a fire.

The best way to...

Re: Ammeter amp rating?

First off there are no numbers on the amp meter to begin with, so it is just a relative indication of a little or lot of amps going into or out of the battery. Some of the "calibrated" shunts I've...

Re: Ammeter amp rating?

True a hi-cap alternator will only charge as much as necessary. If you're running an Optima battery and leave the lights on for a couple of hours, the system will see high charge rates for a while....

Re: Ammeter amp rating?

From what I've seen 60-65 amps will peg the meter. Scout Boy's suggestion to use an external shunt is probably the way to go. Just a piece of the right kind of wire between the terminals will shunt...

Re: Alternator problem 10si

Yes a good battery will be almost impossible to push to 15.5v. It will take a couple of hours or more to top off a lead acid battery, particularly if it is sulfated from being discharged for more...

Re: Alternator problem 10si

Where is the voltage being measured? It shouldn't go 14.5 at the fuse block/amp meter.

Re: New wiring harness issues

Ok, so you need to connect a new engine harness to the existing cab harness. Is the old bulkhead connector completely gone from the cab harness? It sounds from your question that it might still there.

Re: 304 Vacuum or other problem

Agreed ScoutBoy, I had a 345 blowing oil out of the dipstick under load because the PCV and Flame Arrester were plugged.

If the valve gaskets are over 5 years old, I'd start by replacing them.
