I'll second that!! I built the largest garage I could afford (2400 sq
ft on 2 stories), and it was too small from the beginning. But it's
sure nice to be able to work inside, dry (visualize Seattle rain here!),
and I can apply heat at will with a space heater.

Okay, 79 ford. There are three wires to alternator. One is the ground
(screws on, goes to batt), Then there is one with a red push on cap and one
with a black push on cap. Anyone know where these go. Is it red to field,
black to ground ?

The columns between a 2wd & 4wd are not interchangeable, they have different
output connections. If you can find a tilt column from a 4X4 truck or 78-79
Bronco it is a direct swap. These tilt 4X4 columns are hard to find, it
took me over a year to find one.
