am i loosing some of ya??


welded the fuel tank braces in today.
welded in the upper shock mounts, and mounted shocks in the rear.
got my powersteering pump and alternator mocked up.
this is the way v-belts are supposed to look!
I still need to make spacers and tensioners, but it don't look like its going to be hard at all.
grabed the gp38's out of storage.
and its time for headers!
I think these turbos are too big...

Alternator

IDIoit, talk to me about the alternator. Especially the mount. I think my vacuum pump is currently taking that space. Did you just eliminate the vac pump? I guess you may not even need vacuum, I still do, for now. Still, your mount gives me ideas. Is that a GM 1 wire?


My '86 6.9IDI has electrical gremlins. I've done grounds and more grounds, new V-regs after new V-regs. I'm done. One way or another, I'm doing a GM 1 wire.
