So few weeks ago, I noticed a sound while in third which resembled a "ring spinning around a metal bar", at least that is how I describe the sound. Obviously, any odd sound isn't good but I haven't had time to really inspect it. This sound has lessened, or not nearly as noticeable, but now when...
I was thinking about upgrading everything and this makes sense. Now I just need to look into updating my fuse-link wires, as well.
I’m assuming this will address some other oddities which I’m experiencing within the electrical.
This has been on my list of things to fix but a low priority item. As I am nearing it on my list, I wanted to get some advice from y'all. Might this be a failing alternator or faulty wiring causing the voltmeter to bounce like this when using the turn signal?
Been a little more than a weekend, nevertheless, and happy with the results.
Since buying the 62, I opted to level set and replace the common and some not-so wearable items
- spark plugs
- dist cap

26 - Mixture control -continuously rich
43 - Starter...

you’re right. Shortly after postingI noticed that it’s a bolt screw. Waa already exhausted and frustrated from work to take extra minute to think/look at everything before posting.:bang:
appreciate the feedback
recently I had to replace my alternator and noticed the smog pump was missing a brace. Ordered the bracket to only notice the pump thread was broken.
For better visual, here is the bracket on the pump. Clearly there are no threads to bolt it down.
I drove this from Sacramento to San Diego and...
Packed up the family for a bit of camping only to have my alternator die on me while on freeway. Fortunately, I was near my parents so I can put the family up (and tow the truck). Unfortunately, I ended up between the #1 lane and a very fast on-ramp.
After an ordeal to get an alternator and...
