What do you mean cuts off? The gauge zeros out, or are you metering it at no voltage output?

Got an adjustable drop hitch to fit the new bumper today. Harbor Freight special, but it will do just fine for the kayak trailer. Hopefully I can start and finish the tie ins tomorrow after work, then I'll be set for a bit. Forgot to order the sye after work

'00 XJ not quite there..

Got a new alternator... Two things,

Why in the hell do you put an alternator so low? Seriously...., that's horse ****.

Also, salt water is no good for an alternator.

If you're willing to be without A/C you can move it to that location.

What kills the alternator more than anything is having it full of mud and not cleaning it out.

Keeping that stupid rubber mat also helps.

The amount of road salt during the winter here has yet to biff an alternator for me.

This was actually my first cut for my CNC plasma class. Ive since worked out all the kinks and gotten a lilttle better at it so the initial pierce doesnt leave such a big hole. I will definitely miss it after I graduate, as there is no way i can afford one on my own. Especially one with a water table lol
