    3g Alternator swap question

    If I am using a 4 gauge charge cable with a 200a mega fuse, then why do I need to use the original pair of black/red stripe fusible linked wires? Don’t they both run to the battery side of the starter solenoid?

    Another Foreign rant

    Every time I mess around with a foreign I am so glad I also have a domestic. This time it’s my 2006 Kia Sedona. Why in the hell is the metal part of the brake line coming out of the caliper routed directly across the caliper mounting bolt? There is approx 1/2” clearance and you cannot get a...
