I have an alternator charging conundrum on a 1996 M1078 ever since I removed my spare wheel and "cleaned"up behind the cab, the batteries are not charging via the alternator. All I did was relocate the reverse polarity box and remove the ether canister and cut that wire. I've troubleshot the crap out of the alternator, battery connections, etc and only come up with no power on the ENG terminal of the voltage regulator on the alternator (there is 24v to the F- terminal) . So one would think that the regulator is bad, but something doesn't sit right.... could me cutting the ether cable affect the regulator function? Any help would be appreciated.
