I just finished rebuilding my truck engine and will like to test it before installing back in the truck. I know how to get the starter going, but I don't know how to wire the coil, distributor, alternator etc. It is a 1971 360 engine 5.9l . The engine is already set up completely with the alternator and radiator. I just don't know if I just put the positive wire from the battery to the positive on the coil. Or a wire from alternator to the coil???, any help is welcome. thanks

I have a 2000 Ford Focus. One week ago the battery light came on and stayed on for two days when the voltage drained and left me stranded on the side of the road. I took the alternator to a rebuild shop where they replaced the regulator.I reinstalled the alternator and it seems to be charging and it cranks easily but when I use the power windows or listen to the radio somewhat loud they will dim the headlights and instrument lights. The battery light still comes on after starting and stays on.


Sounds like the alternator is still not making the correct voltage to charge the fully. The battery light comes on when the alternator doesn't make enough voltage to charge it. Your alternator might still be charging, but not putting out required vol ... 2000 Ford Focus

Hello, I have a 1995 Buick Riviera w/3.8 ltr supercharged VIN 1. I replaced the old alternator for being noisy-bearing worn.

Overcharging alternator? can an alternator be charging fine and then 2 months later start to overcharge? I got a new battery about 6 months ago. They tested the alternator and said it worked well. After 3 months they serviced the battery and again said the alternator was fine. Now the battery is flat after every weekend(I do not use the car on Sundays). I took it back to them and now they say the alternator is overcharging. Nobody even touched the alternator. Is this possible?

Belts squealing About 4 weeks ago the alternator belt failed, causing the alternator to stop, the battery was weak and would not run the electric radiator fans, so the motor started running hot and blew the radiator. I had the car towed in, and the mechanic replaced the radiator and the belt to the alternator, now the new belt broke less than a month later, I took the alternator off and had it tested, I thought maybe the alternator was not spinning like it should, but the alternator checked out
