The diodes in the Delco alternators are quite reliable. That said, if one of the six diodes fails open in the rectifier bridge, the output will be reduced by 1/6th. There is also a voltage reference...

Realize that your original wiring sent the current from the alternator up to the dash, through the ammeter, and back to the battery. Current flowing through the ammeter makes the gauge move. Your 2...

Do you have a multimeter? If the alternator is charging, it will hold the voltage at the battery at something like 13.5 or 14 volts. Compare that to the battery voltage with the engine off, which...

Possible I guess. The inline 6s are way way way worse about this than the V8s, but the V8s can and do leak at times.

IMO a Crescent wrench (adjustable wrench) would be the wrong tool to use for this. Too much chance of rounding off the bolt corners. Use a good open end wrench or find a thin wall socket that will...

Replied to you on FSJNetwork.

Jeep sold no '77 401 trucks with a manual transmission. Something has been changed. Look at the VIN.

This is an interesting solution. The I terminal of the solenoid is only hot while cranking. With the ignition at 'run,' it's physically disconnected from power. No backfeeding.

You could refer to a Jeep factory wiring diagram for a '78 or newer J-truck. A '77 truck with a V8 came with a Motorcraft alternator. In '78 they changed to the GM 10SI alternator.

Looks like you're still around.

You will need to look at the engine build date code on the side of the block. It's between and underneath the 3 and 4 spark plugs on a cast-in platform.

I would not replace the shackles unless they were obviously worn. You can remove and inspect if you have any doubts. Same with the bolts. Locking nuts are one-time-use, though you can reuse them in a...

My understanding is the full-time cases are not up to the impact load of a manual transmission. That's why they are always offered with automatics, not manual.

The FSJs with the 44 changed from 11"x2" Bendix brakes to Delco brakes after 1973.

Both the 44 and the 60 got Delco brakes, but I don't see any overlap in the respective parts.

I don't see any...

It's part of the towing package. If you ever sell your Jeep, it could be valuable to the new owner. I'd leave it alone unless it's causing trouble.
