I was working on a friends hydraulic motor. It was used and came off a boat with twin gassers. The pump was mounted to the left turn motor.
When we hooked it up it would not work. Reversed the motor and it worked like a charm.
I dunno just thinking.
PS Larry using a turnbuckle for a tensioner. What a great idea.
Hero status dude.
I'm so embarrassed but thanks.
We have 2 alternators, same size with identical 3 stage external voltage regulators. One alternator is for the house bank and one is for the engine: no switches or combiners other than disconnects.
