Arrghhh wouldn't you know it. The day before the cruise my alternator goes out. Fortunately, it's an easy fix. What I didn't realize however is that for the past 20 years I may have been wiring it wrong when replaced. The counter clerk at Kragen said the connections need to go on the parts that have the plastic insulators. Learn something everyday! Well it went in easy enough but I need to get the correct spacer. It's out of alignment just a bit and riding on the 6" bolt I installed to replace the 5" stud that was bent. Seams to be charging but with the Amp gauge who could ever tell. I will be installing new gauges soon so then I should be able to tell. BTW, the old one showed that it was putting out 14 amps but the red "defective" light came on the test unit. New one is lifetime, I hope I don't have to test that.
