Thanks Don
What I have is a Alston pro street sub frame that has 4-link bars
(Ladder bar sub frame).
This is where I have it set.
Trans at 1.78 down. Pinion at 0.

Thanks.

Re: Charging system help

Ok. Final update. The painless shut down relay that I had was the 30amp relay ( which I think they don't sell anymore) so bought the new 250 amp shut down relay that comes with 8 gauge wire from alt to relay and from relay to battery side of cut off switch. Got 12.80 at the alt, and 12.35 in the tru...

Re: 4 link, driveshaft angle confusion

Sorry to be a pan. But when you say 2 degrees down at Trans, 0 degrees at pinion , gives me the 2 degrees im looking for..... That's ? 2 degrees positive up? or neg down? I keep reading with 4 link I need 1 degree neg (pinion down). In relation to driveshaft. Also. You said your driveshaft travels u...

Re: Charging system help

Re: Charging system help

Okay thanks a lot. I have the wiring chart that you're talking about. But that four or six awg wire is going to run to the painless shut off relay before it gets to the battery. Which the 6 awg is down to 12 again. But at least it'll be a step in the right direction The 14.1 volts you're pulling is ...

Re: 4 link, driveshaft angle confusion

Thanks for the response It's a 12 bolt. What I had was trans 3 degrees down and Pinion was 4° up. To give me a negative one degree pinion total. 3 - 4 = -1. But with the driveshaft running uphill at 5° , which would give me Universal joint angles over what I have read is to much. (Transmission yoke ...

Re: Charging system help

Okay thanks that's what I was probably thinking I just can't understand why the painless shut off relay has such a small wire that supposed to run all the way up to the alternator. I have the kill switch relay in the trunk near the battery you think the six AWG wire run back to that relay would be f...
