Status Updates posted by Zed Head

  1. Is this "The Wall"?  It says "Status Updates" and "What's on your mind?"  Pretty sure The Wall is a Facebook thing ripped off from Pink Floyd.  But this isn't Facebook, thankfully.  That would be hell.  Moooo.

    1. Mike


      Yep, this is your wall.

  2. Just kidding.  Again.  Don't touch it!  I mean the site, not something else.

  3. And we're talking about California Datsun, aka Datsun Parts LLC again.  Yesterday seemed so far away...

    Don't worry about it Mike.  No big deal.  

  4. Just like old times!  Can't ignore members and can't block threads.  Aahhh the memories.

  5. Nice!  /discover/20 is back.  (Topics Last 24 Hours).  No bender, posts from the last two days in Topics form, and Load More Activity at the bottom.  A few tasteful ads and the page is very usable.  Thanks Mike, looks good.

      I don't know what Mike did but we've gone from ebay/classiczcars sub category back to actual classiczcars tech forums. A little slow getting our old posters to post instead of lurking but I've noticed a gradual uptick from the the OGs. 8^)

      Thank you Mike. I'm here to learn something.

  6. Just kidding around.

  7. Just posted something.  Maybe I don't really know what a status update is supposed to be.  Let's discuss.

  8. Drinking coffee, browsing the internet.  

  9. Hardwyre, sorry I took so long to see this. I don't have the GM alternator swap, I went with a 1979 ZX alternator. Unfortunately it was a reman from Schucks and it died after about 9 months. But until then, no problems. Now I have an internally regulated 1978 Z alt and it it is working fine, it's actually stronger than the Schucks reman.

    Your problem sounds more like an alternator issue. With the internally regulated alternator there is essentially nothing on the car that should affect it. The alt pumps out amps, the S wire tells the alt where to hold the voltage and the L wire tells you via the Lamp whether or not the alt is putting out more voltage than the battery. If you went with a one-wire, its' even simpler although I think that you lose the lamp indicator.

    Alternators in general are susceptible to over-heating. Maybe yours is on its last legs.
