88YJ Charging questions and help needed
Hey Jeep Pros, Need some help and suggestions here.
I have an 88 YJ 4.2 with 4.0 head conversion, nuttered, weber carb etc etc.. not that that should really matter but lots of people ask if you dont post it here first...
So issue is basically that my alternator stopped charging.. I tested the battery and alternator and both are good, even tried another good alternator and still the same issue.. showing plenty of volts but no amp output when in the Jeep. On the test machine all works correct.
What else can cause the alternator not to charge tha battery? Grounds look good, every thing worked till I pulled the motor and did the head swap. Thought it was fine after but havent driven her much since.. I may have miss connected a wire, or may just be coincidence. Im going mad trying to figure it out. I removed the radio just to make sure it wasnt a bad wire or connection there. What would you check and in what order to narrow my search....
thanks in advance.
worse case senario... Anyone make a harness from scratch? any write ups on it that you recommend?
thanks in advance
