pulled the alternator and the starter.
Replaced the tired mini starter with a remanufactured unit. I wonder if the mini starters have a tough time with large high compression engines?
I think I'm going to see if I can get the alternator rewound.
Autozone could only tell me it was putting out about 10 volts.
Also found out my steering coupler clamp was easier to access from below with the starter out, so I was able to pinch it back on, and also saw I was missing a bolt on the bottom flange of my left header, so I replaced that.
Finally I think I located my power steering leak. Can anyone tell me about the red clamp in the picture (left center), if that type is any good for a high pressure line? Doesnt look like it. I'm almost positive thats where the leak is (right where the hose meets the nut), since I saw a drop fall on the housing about 2" below that nut.
