Re: Forgot more than I know

If you have failing diodes you can easily run the voltage way over 14. Have it tested Oh if it were only easy to get out. Its the absolute hardest to get to alternator I have ever seen.

Re: Forgot more than I know

Update time. Since I last posted I have completed the change out of the orfice tube with an OEM one. I will post pics of the orfice tube I removed.
