Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: I changed my 6 volt 47 CJ2A jeep with a floor start to a 12 volt Alt. After hooking up the batt jeep starts fine. But, batt is dead after sitting for 24 HR. Any idea's where the power drain might be?


Be sure that your switch is shutting off. Then check the wire that is hooked to the line side of the floor switch. The best way to figure it out iss to see what is hooked thru the switch and what is not. The things that are not thru the switch disconnect each one individually and see if they throw an arc. If one does, trace it out and see where it goes such as the heater lights radio.etc.
