I'm planning to get the original AUX battery system on my '86 Weekender back up and running, with an upgrade to the Yandina Combiner 100 and a Blue Seas fuse block.

Does anyone know the proper torque for the radiator bleed screw? Or have recommendations on how to proceed cautiously without breaking it? How tight do these need to be?

I ask, because mine doesn't ...

Like BYO said, I accidentally bought the 2.5 Contour alternator off Rock Auto, and had to send it back because the tabs were off. The 4cyl version worked fine.

Yes! The barb on the PS pump is totally easy to move. You just need the confidence to know that it's actually possible and that it won't break. After reassurance from others, I fashioned myself a litt ...

You can always buy your engine on Ebay, too. That way you get to see a photo and have a pretty good sense what you're dealing with. That's the way I ended up going. Many of the engines you'll find wil ...
