Re: OT;Problem with tow vehical-need parts
First off , no shop in their right mind would ever cut and weld a drag link , the liability is just too high . If they do things like that , I'd be taking a very close look at the Fire Dept.'s equipment . That kind of workmanship could cost someone their life . Why on Earth would you want a 200 amp Leece Neville, anyway? Those alt's are known for blowing up , their reliability has always been a joke . The semi's I work on use either them or the Delco Gray Ghost , we've done a ton of conversions to get rid of the Neville's. If nothing else , go get a 100 amp Chrysler , and it's brackets . You may need to get the bottom crank pulley set also , I can't remember on the smallblocks . That Mopar unit will outlast the Neville 10 to 1 , and it's amp rating is very conservative , more like 140a+ . I've got one downstairs that has almost 200k on it , no signs of even any wear yet in the bearings , just the pulleys themselves . Wish I had time to come down there , I'd set those guys straight in a hurry .....
