Re: Charging system help

In my experience and opinion a 140 amp alt is more then enough. The alt should put out 14 VDC with a fully charged battery. Make sure the battery is actually good, charge it then check the volts. If anything less then 13.5 out of the alt, the alt may have an issue. Your previous post about the 12.8 ...

Re: Charging system help

One thing you should be sure of it the difference of the voltage reading from the alternator output connection to the voltage reading at the battery. Should be less then .5vdc or the closer the better. The Power Master website has great info regarding this.

Re: Cold Weather

I would pull it right from the rad but the reservoir tank should be ok. That's the 5.7 vortec right?

Re: Cold Weather

Hey Bruce,

I would buy an antifreeze tester, and then maybe add straight antifreeze until it shows good. I would assume they are somewhat accurate.

Re: Tire Pressure Variation

I thought it was odd the pressure did not change...that was a long time ago and not anything to back it up. Not sure about your wonderment....I only check them in the lanes right before we start moving especially if the sun is beating on one side. My point was that the pressures in the radials stay ...

Re: Tire Pressure Variation

I had the pressure checked after a burnout 1 time and there was no change. This was with a bias slick and tube. Even with the drag radials I have now the only thing that seems to drive up pressure is direct sunlight.

Re: What are your ET predictions for your cars next season??

Kicking around freshening the bottom end (12yrs old) and a cam swap this summer. I really need the car to go 11.40's in the heat to run the 11.50 index and have a chance. Right now it's close to a 50 but would rather have more in the bank.
