getting short

By Shelty

Filed under: 1986 Ford Mustang (Dorothy)

well, she sprouted an electrical problem... when Dorothy runs, her lights surge on and off, I went through and traced the source to the Altenator. there are three connections, one that is bolted on and two that clip on, of these two, one is red, the other is black, when the red one is disconnected, the surging stops. my theory is that either the altenator was bad or going (it looked crappy, it was rusty and had the infamous junkyard yellow grease crayon markings on it.

got a new unit today, though it is sitting in a box in my room due to rain. It rained all day, not a good enviroment for work on the electrical system. so tomorrow I plan on getting it hooked back up...
