    New aftermarket radiator maker in the ring.

    Folks should know that the upper inlet for a hmmwv vs a Hummer H1 radiator are in different locations. so an H1 radiator will not be plug and play in a hmmwv, you will need to make a new upper radiator hose.

    Replaced 200A Alternator showing 40V+ on 24V and 20V+ on 12V

    14.5 volts is the correct output for the 14v tap...these gens have a soft start feature, it takes about 30 seconds to start output, and needs a load. It’s possible I guess the new box is causing an issue, have you put the old back in?

    Replaced 200A Alternator showing 40V+ on 24V and 20V+ on 12V

    It appears you have an A2 truck, your 14v tap should have a cable running from the regulator to the positive battery lug on the rear battery. that regulator needs a load on the 14v to be active with voltage. the 200amp Gen charges the batterys direct from the large positive lug on the Gen and...

    Red dot ac install

    Sounds like a crap A/C shop, if They knew what they were doing they would know how to override the pressure switches and test the compressor, I also wonder how he got 4lbs of r134 into the system if the compressor was not running...literally impossible to do.
