That's not a bad idea. Everything we come up with seems lame! I like making waffles in the bus, and I never make them at home, so I thought "Büswaffles" was a good name for today. It's Dutch for German Belgian waffles.



Kilowhat? Hmmm. I wonder if that's taken by someone else already. I have to find that list someone made once.
List is attached.

Kilowhat, kilowatt, electro, reddy kilowatt might work.

Thread derail (as if)! Find all 3 dogs, win no prizes! A hard day of doing nothing for them today, but we were out in the heat all day.

I think I see #3 - must have had a little more energy than the other two.

I replaced the alternator that died a few weeks ago today. It had a 21si Delco that clearly wasn't original, but it fit fine. I replaced it with a new 160a 24si Delco. It self excites at idle a few seconds after startup, too.

So here's the mystery of the day. There was a yellow wire connected to the old alternator that came out of a 3-wire connector that sits on top of the engine by the alternator. There's a yellow, green, and red wire. The green and red wires used to be riveted to something because the rivets are still on the terminals. Any idea what this would have connected to? There's no +12 or ground on them. The yellow wire on the alternator was not switched ignition so I have no idea why it was on there.

You can see the connector at the rear of the alternator here:



Here's the connector's mate that was halfazzed onto the alternator for no reason:

The yellow, green and red wires were for an external voltage regulator.

So there's a regulator buried in there somewhere, interesting.

Covered in old grease and mud was the old regulator by the driver's side mud flap. I got the turbo blanket installed today but I need to get some stainless springs to hold it on there. If anyone wants a high quality low price OEM style turbo blanket for their 8v or 6v, here's what I bought: eBay link p/n 1755570 and I found it was used on the HET or one of those military trucks with the 8V92. It fits my turbsky perfectly. $45 is a steal.

They are taking $35 plus shipping when you make them an offer, so you may try $25-30 to start.
