Re: Whoa is me, truck running poor!

Agreed☹️

Is there a source for new pistons? There must be many piston manufacturers, I'd like to think that there's an option outside of buying used or nos parts.

Whoa is me, truck running poor!

Well, last Monday morning the truck didn't want to start, but she did. I chalked it up to being Monday and I didn't want to go to work either. :mrgreen: Truck started better for driving home, however, her running condition got worse. So last week I put in a new fuel filter, which helped on the power...

Re: Charge indicator light

I've been tempted to drive the truck for awhile and take readings at the battery before and after operation, just to see what happens. The alternator guy has a good reputation. Not sure exactly what he did. He said the diodes tested good, the bearing is in good shape, and the alternator was not an i...

Re: Charge indicator light

Well I recleaned the alternator ground. Good to go in that realm. To be clear, I checked the ground strap that goes from the alternator to the intake manifold stud. I started the truck and while running turned off the battery switch. As expected the truck turned off. Rmel, you mentioned #53 as a rel...

Re: Charge indicator light

Well I decided to retest based on your response rmel. Red wire 25.4 Blue wire 1.6 Yellow wire 1.5 Yellow wire with all accessories on 1.4 Not sure why these results differ from the previous...

DF is 60-80.

The readings were bouncing all over. The meter was not displaying any consistent numbers..

Charge indicator light

Howdy folks, As the title reads the charge light is lit on the dash. I've searched the forum, read the posts, and am still struggling. Here's what I've done so far, not necessarily in order. Replaced a glazed and stretched fan belt. Cleaned and completely disassembled the molex connector. Replaced t...
