OK I though so. There is some minor resistance on the alternator positive output side for some reason, we'll get to that later.
As an aside, and maybe I should do this in a separate thread or maybe not....
We were at a car show 3 hours from home over the weekend....car was fine all the way there. parked and it sat for 9 hours or so. Started it up and the dash fuel and temp gauges legged to the right. The aftermarket temp gauge showed normal and of course the car was cold.
Shut it off for a minute, restarted, and it was fine for a little bit then pegged again....drove a ways like that til we took a break, shut it down....next start up it was fine the rest of the way home.
I think I recall this happening once very early in my ownership of the fish.......some 7+ years ago.
The voltmeter gauge still showed the normal high charging status while it was happening.
