The charging problem was the alternator belt basically hanging off, I'm guessing that jared loosened the alternator to help lean the engine (before he left he was saying he forgot to tell me something that seemed important, ) or the engine lean broke it
I KNEW I FORGOT SOMETHING!!!!!!! DAMMMITTTT1!!!!!!
so yea, that explains a lot. the block wouldnt tilt down if i had not loosened the alternator and pressed it close to the block. as we tried lowering the block the alternator pulley kept hitting the frame rail. which brings me to a mild concern. assume you adjusted it back out and got it running, how is the alternator pulley bearing?
don't waste your time or time will waste you
