Not a dumb question really. I cover over the actual conducting parts of the connection to maintain current and block water/junk from getting in the way. Sundowner should do a write-up as only he can do to cover this topic. Visual aid would be.....stimulating.

I put it in all of my connections last year. But I just washed my engine bay for the second time, and when I start it it stuffers for a minute then high idle back to normal. The engine light comes on occasionally. I turn it off and back on and it's fine. After a day or two it's back to normal. I think I need to hit the plugs again, or it could be an injector leak. I pulled the code and it read O2 sensor. So that could be the connector getting water in it. I replaced it last year as well. I think the plug has a crack in it.

Going to pull it now and see if I can seal it up with electricle tape and put more grease in it.

You both do realize that the reason that is up there is because Keith (the main Admin of JF) is also the lead admin of Chicken Forum? It's the same way they pushed GlockForum when it launched. They're all owned by the same group of people

Well. That wasn't it and I'm out of grease for now. Ran propane around the enjectors and no leaks. Unplugged each injector 1 x 1 and they are fine and working. Checked the map sensor plug and it doesn't seal right. I replaced it a few years ago. Might have to go to the dealership and get an OEM part to make it seal right. Guess I'll have to go through all the sensors and hit them again with grease. Deffinantly a water issue as it will clear up in a day or two. But I don't want to have issues next time I do a water crossing....

Tool kit

I followed with great interest on how you can put 10 pounds of tools in a 5 pound bag. I scrounged, bought and borrowed the necessary items and with great antisipation I began to put them in the Bell bike handelbar bag. Much to my suprise they all fit (with the exception of the pry bar and hammer) plus a few not mentioned. Thank you for your time and willingness to put this together. I am hoping the tools stay in the bag unuesed for a loooong time..Chuck

A bit off topic but they just released the toxicology on the face-chewing guy in Florida: nothing but pot.

So I think we're back to our original assumption: zombie patient zero.

I'm proud to be helping with that.
more dumb question: how water resistant is the alternator? and urm.... if the answer is "not a bit", then what to do about that? it seems waaaayyy too open for my comfort.

I've never had an issue with one getting wet. To my knowledge, they're reasonably weather-resistant and I can't really think of much that's inside of one that would be water-soluble, with the possible exception of the regulators. Like most everything else under the hood, the alternator dries out pretty quickly once it gets wet...I hit mine with the hose all the time and there's been no damage. I actually scrubbed it with a brush and soapy water, once.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

I'm guessing there pretty water resistant as most new small engine cars it seems there on the bottom of the motor. I've had mine submerged many times and have yet to have them fail electronically. But I have had the mud eat up the bearings twice.

I am having Chick-fil-a catered in for a lunch and learn with UPS at work.

Sorry, no relevance to the build but exciting nonetheless.

I have a jeep...and it is modified...I win.
