What Are You Doing This Weekend?

I tracked down where my voltage drop is on my Rambler, it’s a 0.9 amp draw coming from the alternator which kills the battery overnight. I disconnected the alternator yesterday, threw a fully charged battery in there, cranked it over, shut it down, and restarted it this morning. Full cranking power. This weekend i’ll be getting a new set of Diodes. It’s an old 35 amp Delco Remy, which I believe can be rebuilt to 61 amps. I might just rebuild it and create a How To Guide this weekend as well.
