Monday August 22, 2022 Guerneville CA.
Today was the day to get the new alternator on the van. I had it all prepped and ready to work on so I just needed to do the work with the tools, but I wasn’t into it.
Chair hopping instead
Instead I did some chair hopping around the yard until a bit later in the day when I finally grabbed the wrenches and started to do the work.
Finally got started on the job
Checked the oil
Ready to test out the new alternator
I like these quick clamp battery terminals as it’s much easier to deal with hooking things up or changing the batteries. They seem to be holding up well.
I started the van and checked the voltage gauge to see if the new alternator was working and it wasn’t.,,,,,,,,,,, but.
I had read the directions before I started and it said if there’s no output from the alternator to hold the plus wire on this one screw for a moment and it should start to charge, but it was getting late so I didn’t get to that part yet.
Instead I went in the house for the day and called it a day.
