[ QUOTE ] Damn IT SCOTTY! I need MORE POWER! [/ QUOTE ] DAMN these ELECTRIC FANS! I killed my gel-cell three times this weekend! I put it on a 2 amp trickle charger and the battery was fine in a 1/2 hour. So I doubt it'ss the two year-old battery. I thought I killed the alternator. I had a trail-spare, put that on, still not enough charging power. Then I thought maybe my battery Isolator was bad. I bypassed that (killed the battery isolator with it running). /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif IIRC- the alternator for a '73 was only ~60 amps. It's not enough power to keep everything going. Anyone know what year/model I can ask the Kragen/Autozone guys for a 100 amp (or 90) alternator that will use the old style belts? For some reason I thought it was a van but I am not sure of the year. Thanks.
