    PO ran a 75 watt bulb off of it when camping. It runs off of battery junction. I disconnected though just not sure about removing and leaving holes there. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    Oh man, I just laughed my ass off. Is there some type of DC-AC converter? How'd the wiring go? Is it just a hack job not worthy of running a blender?

    hooked up directly to power junction. The PO was pretty proud on this one(cool guy). The guy used this to go on trips, camping etc so at the time(early 80's, he was being pretty clever.

    It says "12 volts DC" underneath so I don't think you'd actually be able to run many things off it.

I bet it ran REAL good like that!I've seen a few good ones myself!.
    I know a guy who uses the 110v outlet with the weatherproof covers for his trailer wiring--that allows him to use ordinary extension cords for the trailer lights(since he scraps a lot of cars the wires and lights get trashed pretty quickly,so he decided this was the way to go--wires wrecked??--no problem--another 1.99 extention cord from the glove box,and its back in service!.
    By the way--how does your truck run with that "4-hole" spacer/adapter??--I tried that style and the "open" one on my 400 SB with stock quadrajet manifold--it feels like 50 more horses with the "open"one(it has a divider in the center,a thin strip of aluminum,but mostly open)compared to the "4 holer" that is claimed to increase low end tourque--cant prove it by my motor--It felt like the 4 hole one acted like a restrictor plate--it really cranks with the open one. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif
