Post by jonfromhamilton » Sun 03 Mar, 2019 10:31 pm

so today my battery put out around 9v then it turnes the engine over (just) and across the terminals i still only got about 9.? volts so im thinking my alternator is cake. i put the batter on charge for most of the day and im getting 12.7 or 12.8 now with the engine off so im thinking the battery id still ok. ill check tm tho.
thoughts?
