Could someone be so kind as to save me a session with the wiring
diagrams in the shop manual by providing basic amp draws for a '80-86
F150?
Lights
A/C
Stereo
Other accessories

I address this to the performance list because the rig runs an 80 amp
alternator with an early 460, has a couple of extras (24 amps total
draw) and I feel the dread of probably nearing the alternator capacity.
I don't drive it after dark this time of year but don't want to find out
I'm right as the days get shorter.

TIA

George I don't think you will have a problem with the 80 amp it was
standard equiptment for a long tome on the large lincolns amd t birds its
not the alt it's the battery you need to think about try a bxt 65-850
it should take care of any worries you might have.

Thanks. I run a 750 and haven't yet, other than heat sink starting
being slow, experienced any problems. I'm currently living in the
desert, where excessive temps eat batteries about every two years. Even
when you replenish the water. 19 of the additional amps are new
fans and that was the reason for my concern.

your 460 it will bolt up with a small amount of help the wirin is a snap
too .. iff you want to do that give me a shout on icq 9345628 or Texas
