    Not your fault, it is a forum thing to keep out bots and spammers.....

    I used to own a large hobby forum as well as am an admin on another that I helped build from scratch with a friend....

    Have a Mega shifter for it but really don't want to cut the shifter bracket....

    Get the Gremlin out of the carburetor and charging system.....

    Once able to be driven, pick out wheels and tires....

    That's why I was trying to send you a video.... it's overcharging... I bypassed the entire voltage regulator wiring and straight wired it to the battery and alternator and still overcharging.....

    Replace both rectifier Bridges and capacitor on a NOS alternator I had on the car, as well as sending out to me alternator repair shop did the test on it and everything tested good, then I replaced alternator what's same results

    There isnt really anything in the harness that could jack ya if all is grounded and you have the proper wires on the alt. Hmmm.

    I had one that would overcharge but I cant recall the fix, but boy were the headlights bright.

    I need to find somebody with a known good working charging system, to let me send my voltage regulators to test on their car, possibly send me one of their to see if it'll work on mine
