Thanks for the compliments. I appreciate it.

I have a ton of man hours in this pile of steel. I spent 6 hours yesterday disassembling both front doors, scraping crusty window stripping off and removing rusty panels. Unreal how water getting inside the door has just deteriorated the inner workings of the windows. Now to find weather stripping that works. I have some, but it's generic. This car was a rotting pile of metal and severely neglected when I bought it.

I still have no working radio. (no speakers or wires) and no heat, not that I'll need that much here in Florida.

I think this alternator puts out plenty of amps at idle. My connector to the voltage regulator popped off when I was driving so I suspect I was driving off the battery so the charge may be low.

I do appreciate everyone's feedback. This site has been a wealth of knowledge since day 1. I'm always searching something and finding the answer. Im probably gonna be seriously shopping for heads here after the holidays.
