  1. Well swapped alternator's at NAPA this morning, no bench tester available. Drove home, right about the same numbers. as before battery .009 Alternator .019-.02. Have to finish packing up the house and drive to Idaho Saturday/Sunday so we will see how it goes.
  2. Perfect timing I had just pulled in the driveway. Did the cruise around the block and got the same original data minus the spike on the alternator side. Ran over to Napa to swap it but the parts guy was running late have to do it in the morning.
  3. Got the truck good and warmed up. Put the meter on the alternator. .008-.01 on the Battery, .019 on the alternator, although every 15 seconds or so it would jump up to .025-.030, then settle back to .019-.021 fairly quickly. Not sure if that was my hand etc... All accessories off. I called NAPA and they had one in stock, will try to stop by tonight or the morning and swap it out.
  4. Nice, I'm thinking this would do the trick? https://www.amazon.com/Fluke-101-Multimeter-Resistance-Capacitance/dp/B00HE6MIJY/ref=asc_df_B00HE6MIJY/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=366343882692&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10264633338135990573&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030767&hvtargid=pla-434551935004&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=76503872296&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=366343882692&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10264633338135990573&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030767&hvtargid=pla-434551935004 We're moving to Cascade Idaho for a bit to FS housing, a 1930s ranger house. Planning to buy in Donnelly since my wife and I work for the FS. If we move there we can work in McCall or Cascade or New Meadows and never have to move again for work.....
  5. Will do. This truck came with a bad edge tuner, they tested it and have me a big discount on this one.... I mainly like the gauges and alarms for my wife.
  6. I forgot that the edge juice had a map sensor plug adapter. I unplugged all that plug the original map sensor in unplugged the edge juice reset the codes and went for a drive. Didn't get any codes but time will tell. Wow what a difference that truck makes without the tuner even running the tuner on zero and one seems like a big jump from stock.
  7. So I unplugged the juice module cruise down the street to get a sandwich and had a maximum of maybe 1/4 throttle. Plugged it back in for the drive home and drove normal, is that me not resetting it correctly? Edit:. Got my scanner, pulled a P0237 code. Saw a list of things from Mopar1973man on a previous post
  8. Gotcha. I'll give that a try although I'll miss my EGT gauge. The hard part on this is it seems to happen every couple of thousand miles.
  9. Copy, that was my edge ct2. Hopefully the scanner I ordered will give me a better read. I'm an electrical dummy is there a multimeter y'all would recommend to check for AC noise that I could pick up somewhere like Lowe's or Napa? The only other random thing that popped into my mind was about 2 months ago I turned off the truck and it kept running. Never had it happen before or since and I ended up unplugging the edge box and it turned off....
  10. Thanks. No 2 stroke, how much are you adding? If I get to salt lake I can drop it off at my father in laws shop, he's pulling out other trailer up there with me. I'll check for water. Was going to do a fuel filter and oil change before I left. I got a fault I'm companion module code p1063. Waiting on a code reader to get delivered today.
  11. Thanks, I might break down and see if I can get a good shop to look at it since I need to drive up to Idaho on Saturday with a trailer. I get about 17 to 18 PSI at idle on fuel pressure.
  12. Would a failing VP44 pump give me similar symptoms over a 5-month period and probably 8 or 9,000 mi that occurring every two months?
  13. Thanks, i was just on his site, but I'm not sure I'd get one before I need to leave with a trailer Saturday morning... One from Napa I could swap with the warranty if it is out of spec at least
  14. Well, I'm gonna start on this mod. Can I do this without removing radiator hose etc...? Got my first dead pedal after a few thousand miles of towing and two months. We're currently moving from Southern Nevada to Central Idaho been hauling trailers up and down the last two months. And I already moved my shop up to Utah when this happened so I'm down to the bare minimum on tools. I'm also loading the final trailers and getting the house ready to sell this week. I have new batteries and new battery terminals. I'm pulling code p1063 and the codes for the glow plug relays.
  15. Appreciate the help, didn't see this before I put in a new one, so no bench test. Napa treats me good on returns though. 100 miles down and acting right. 160 to go. I'll give it a deep dive when I get home.
