i have been dealing with the white stuff latley. and driving my dads PA with the original tires from 99. its been an interesting week in this low mileage beast.

first we got 3" then 8" and we just got another 3" about an hour or 2 ago for me to drive to work in tomorrow at 630 am.

i also took the nasty dirty impala out today.


the picture behind the ambulance is actually a 4 lane road. that was my 630 commute after the 8".

A New Battery LOL? (a bit of a fuzzy pic)
I do see something that resembles my Ancor Marine wiring job from the Alt, with an inline wafer fuse that runs directly to my battery though...
Why did u not run direct from the back of Alt to the battery?

Oh I get it... I had to downsize your image, as I was working on the smaller notebook screen to see your new Alternator! Nice how is it working...volts now staying higher now or? What are the specs is it a stock alt? When I installed my new custom quality power alt I also did the serp belt at the same time.
