ok well i went to start it this morning to see if it was still holding a charge well it didn't start,
so far now this is the list of new parts
starter
alternator
battery terminals
main battery wires
i wired in a regulator box that wasn't hooked up
ignition solenoid
and it still doesn't hold a charge the battery is new as of 1/09 so i dont know
i took all the grounds off and wire brushed them clean so i have good ground.
i have no idea now what could be wrong unless its the battery, i've heard of opening it and putting red wine in the battery? i dont know what to do now any help would be great thanks

i'd pull the battery and take it to a parts store or someone that has a good battery tester, a lot can happen in 9 months of a battery's life, cold, heat, vibrations all take a toll on a battery

ok well took it out today
broke the rear drive shaft but fixed that by around 2pm. then took it back out for alittle bit
the fuel pump went out, i checked the fuel filter and the hose going to the carb and they were dry so hopefully a fuel pump will fix that, but with the battery i think its the voltage regulator box which is only 16 bucks so hopefully pick one of those up soon, other then that it should be running good.
about the dana axles can u measure spring perch to spring perch and whats the wms to wms just so i know i might be interested but 400 is a little much with only 3.31 gears
