good luck on your adventure
Adventure is over. Picked up battery and supplies and even ordered out for today. Had to dismantle a bunch of stuff just to remove battery. Typical. Of course i grabbed my socket set and not wrenches. Luckily parts guy lent me one quick so i could finish lol.

Yeah has been giving me issues lately. Guessing the bad battery was fouling up some things and it just got to point the alternator just couldn't keep a charge on it any longer. Probably the original battery since manufacture..so didn't owe me anything.

This weather has not helped batteries at all. That deep freeze really hit some of the older ones and drained them.

How's everything else going?

Older vehicles were soooo much easier. Change battery, just loosen the wedge that keeps it in place then loosen terminals. My old Duster i almost could climb into the engine compartment to work on it lol.
