    Mechanic for oddball diesel in Garden Grove area

    I have a 1992 Daihatsu Rugger w/ 2.8l turbodiesel (Toyota DL-52). It was imported from Japan, I'm not aware of any domestic vehicles that use this engine. The diesel injection pump just started leaking pretty bad (a Bosch VE clone). All of my shop space is taken up with racecars so I'll need to...

    What can fry an alternator?

    With no clear solution, we've been forced to withdraw from the race. We have implemented every credible solution and still have continued to experience the issue. We're honestly in disbelief about this and it's hard to say where to even go from here, aside from putting hundreds of miles on the...

    What can fry an alternator?

    Thanks to everyone that has offered their insights. My uncle, his navigator and an electrical expert worked their ass off over the weekend and seem to have resolved the issue. They're headed down to the 400 today so we'll find out this week. It appears to have been related to voltage drop in the...

    What can fry an alternator?

    Could be, we've done multiple tests, including by using a current meter to confirm we aren't over-stressing the alternator. Based on everything that we've seen so far, we are far under-utilizing the rated current of the alternator. The only thing we don't know is whether we are finding an arc...

    What can fry an alternator?

    The alternator on one of our class 12's keeps blowing. We DNF'd after burning through 3 of them at the Baja 500, so had the car completely rewired in preparation for the 400. The car was just taken out testing with the new wire job and once again the alternator fried (this time a 90 amp). What...

    Aluminum hardline type

    What is the application? On our race vehicles (classes 9, 10 and 12) as well as our prerunners we run braided or rubber hose. Running hardlines is probably over-thinking the problem. But if that's what you're set on, 3003 will work just fine for you.
