    Alternator joy...not

    So as always, I'll give you the background story. On the Blue (basically stock) 80 on coled start up the belt (or belts) would squeal a bit. Couple of revs and it would go away. Ok, ok redneck style but hindsight is everything. Came back yesterday from Hungary to the Alps. Wanted to run the...

    Alternator hack calling McGyver!!!

    First let clarify that I live in Nicaragua, and finding original replacement parts is next to impossible. I have what we believe is a 1965 FJ 40 with a 2f motor out of a '72.
