well i finally met the frydaddy last night. he knows a few electricians i know. he came to my house to check out my rigs we got to talking and drinking and drinking and talking. he told me to ditch the stock charging system. since i was having problems with it anyway. he said put the big gm alt with one wire hook up with int reg. but we switched topics so much i forgot what year or model to get the alt off of. can anyone tell me this info. also hope to meet some of you guys at toys for tots.
