Re: altenator getting to hot
Well, I changed the fan and that seemed to help alot. didn't get hot as fast but still to hot to touch after about 30 minutes now. It didn't blow out any puffs of white smoke running at 3500 rpm and voltage is still good.
Gonna keep an eye on it for now, got bigger fish to fry. After the shakedown run yesterday I had the right rear axle start walking in and out a 1/4" + on the 9". Felt the vibration. Yanked the axles. Can't see any visible signs of anything wrong. Acts like bearing thickness is wrong though driver side is the same and good. Seems like bearing retainer is not holding it and axle is sliding out towards it. But why now?
Gonna dive in it today and figure it out. If not, I'll stuff a peg leg 10 bolt in it for now just to run it. LOL
Big weekend here in redding, she's gotta run dammit! Thanks for the help.
