    I won’t cry, for a few reasons. Consolidated power generation is far cleaner and more efficient than burning fossil fuels at distributed points of consumption; and wind and solar power form a large...

    Parts of southern and central California certainly do, though much of that is due to agriculture and industry. Imagine how much worse that would be without automotive emissions controls. We are...

    Nuances. There are far fewer aircraft than cars; those few aircraft are flown far fewer hours than cars are driven; so while the specific exhaust gas composition is worse than auto exhaust, the...

    I did not mention carbon footprint. Clean air is a very different topic than carbon emissions. Catalyst or not makes no difference to carbon footprint, but having effective emissions controls makes a...

    Because nobody needs to breathe clean air, correct? Having grown up in 80’s Ireland with uncatalyzed leaded petrol engines everywhere, with about a third of my classmates suffering from asthma, I’m...
  6. [Electrical] Final update- new alternator installed

    All,
    Issued resolved- seems like a problem with the new alternator. DMCH replacement was sent and installed; all is good. Great service from DMCH! No more whining from the alternator with the...

    Looks like the feed through the #191 bulb in the panel results in a 3 volt signal to the +L line on the alternator. Playing around with a potentiometer I was able to pull the alternator regulator...

    Wow! Thanks for that. I'll give them a call right now.

    Thanks! Read through that....weirdly I do not have the flashing test sequence. I wonder if there's a new rev of the regulator.

    Best,
    Ken

    Hi Ron, Dave,
    With the 140 Amp DMCH alternator only the brown/yellow wire is used to trigger the regulator to turn on. This is the ground side of the charging lamp on the instrument panel. The brown...

    Thanks- I had previously replaced that relay and it does not seem to be the source of the issue.

    By unplugging every other noise maker in the engine bay I have isolated the whine to the alternator. It whines with the ignition on, and stops when I pull the charge light connector out (brown/yellow...

    Alternator would be annoying. It's brand new from DMCH. 300 miles. Whine was there with the engine off.

    Just to clarify- alternator is topping battery off easily while driving, and running the...
  14. [Electrical] 4amp draw- high pitched whine from engine compartment- ignition off

    Had a dead battery today. Drove the car quite recently- yesterday. Quick boost charge to start, alternator came up fine. Battery charged on a 30 minute drive.

    Post driving I shut down and heard a...

    I can tell you that the clean low-mile black car I bought from BAT for just under $32k needed about $8k of parts to make it safe to drive, and at least 100 hours of my time. Needs another $5k to make...

    Roger. Connectors are all good. I don't have the recall but I have rewired the fuel pump ground.

    I would respectfully disagree. MIL-W-22579/16 has become the de facto standard for aircraft wiring because of the improved mechanical and thermal resistance over standard PVC. It can be stripped...

    Agreed (almost*). I also replaced the fuel pump, cleaned the connections, and verified all the other loads are within specification. The fuse block damage occurred prior to my ownership.

    [Electrical] #7 fuse replacement

    Howdy,
    Just wanted to throw out an idea in case anyone else felt the need. My #7 fuse was burnt to a crisp when I received my DMC. I replaced the entire fuel panel but wasn't very happy with the...
