Someone will correct me if I鈥檓 wrong, I thought that disconnecting the battery protected the diodes in the alternator, shouldn鈥檛 effect the dash or fan, they probably share a common power pick up. Try to trace that back.

Old wires get brittle, they can break inside the insulation, a test light or meter is the best way to chase the power. Also could be the earths.

Terminals vibrate, you鈥檇 be surprised with the amount of movement that happens when a vehicle moves. For a start, just wiggle every terminal and fuse you can.

Great work! Just wish my students had been as motivated as you. That could have been a great yr12 Industrial Tech project.

I only have a cat now, no muffler. It鈥檚 not too loud, even under load. Sounds better than the muffler free landcrabs.

Doesn鈥檛 require a cat, try without first, some sound great, some make you want to hide your head in shame.

It鈥檚 a little know fact that there are a few secret hiding places built into patrols for water storage, they are there to help travellers when they run out of water. Over years you discovered most of them. 馃槈

Any thing is possible, some of the best engineering has happened because someone said it couldn鈥檛 be done.

You can drop the tail shaft and just run the front diff. You will find the steering heavier and hear a clacking sound when turning. Love my Lokka.
