im trying to move from new mexico to florida. the housing restrictions here make ir very hard to find a place over the internet so im in florida for a month. i miss my truck. i love driving it. feeling it rumble to life when i turn the key, listening to the idle as i slowly move out of the driveway,feeling the torque as i press the gas and take off. now my poor truck is just sitting. i hope its thinking about me when im thinking about it..
its funny... I feel the same way when my truk is not running.
i finally got home from florida and my poor truck wasnt doing so hot. my battery which is about 8 years old was dead. im pretty sure i can charge it and keep it going for a bit. then i noticed a small fuel leak right at the fuel pump. im sure its just a hose clamp but i havent gotten a chance to correct it yet.
dead batteries...trickle charge..if possible at 1/4 to 1/3 of an amp at 16 to 18 volts DC... how to perform this.. once in a while .. a person will have a current limiting adjustable voltage power supply.. they are about 200 bucks normally.. i have one as i use it for bench testing various devices... if you just hook it up with jumper cables to a running car.. or another battery it will harden the sulfate crystals and ruin the battery forever..the 1/4 to 1/3 of an amp at 18 volts dissolves the crystals.. if they have not been hardened with excessive current during a normal charge attempt..i have brought back batteries that have sat and slowly discharged for months..
