Shortly after getting my truck I accidently got a wrench on my alternator when closing hood and shorted it out. So put a new Wilson on it. Well I had to put another on it. Burnt out at post , retifer. Cable was tight. Sent it off to be rebuilt but to far gone. Scratching my head on this.

Interesting. It is charging wide open 14.7 right now but batteries are low. But I hadn't noticed it doing this. I would have since it has an analog guage. I removed the back and it got hot and melted some of the plastic in it. Stud got hot. But connection was good and tight. Line on truck didn't get hot enough to show sign.
