Those of you who said that my problem was brushes, stand and take a bow.
One brush was just a small triangle when I removed them.
Whoever designed this vehicle, should be shot. The bottom alternator
bolt is a bi_ch to remove. I used a 6" and two 12" extensions and two
universals to remove it. Pulled the passenger compartment cover and
unbolted it from there. I removed the bracket, drilled out the threaded
portion and used a piece of 7/16" ready rod with nuts on both sides to
re-install. When the bracket is removed, you can actually reach the
passenger side plugs from the front.
Anyway, the battery was dead when I tried to start it. I put charger on
Bat with the negative clamp removed. Then I checked for drain from post
to clamp and found a 4.6 amp current. Anyone know from past experience
what this drain might be? Everything is off, doors closed, so no
switches are closed. When I touch clamp to post, I can't hear any sounds
of something using power.
