I'm gonna test the bat and alternator. Back when the MM failed, the motor smashed my alternator a couple times on the frame rail so it could've internally effed it. Might just be chasing that since it fired fine once it was completely hooked to a different vehicle's juice. Yeah, I don't need all those lights involved in the harness as this thing is 100% trailer queen, so I prolly will just simplify it.

its lttle effort now to repair then out in the trail.

secondly the tube chassie would be a huge step up as would and ELECTRIC fan. to take care of cooling.
True true. The tube chassis will come, but I'd rather limit my downtime so I'll have that all ready to go and paid for before I make the switch. I'll be getting a Spal electric fan when the times comes.

I chunked the hell out of the front edges. Figured I'd attack the rear edges for a while Then again, there's no rocks out here to chunk anything on...
