Re: Blowdown Pass - Glacier Lake Loop - Sept 19-20th 2020

Yes, well spotted. It was a Nissan Pathfinder that rolled off the road fairly recently going by the condition of it.
Its a narrow, steep, rocky section there (the photo doesn't show the knarly-ness!).

We looked for a licence plate in case it was reported stolen but there was no sign of it :dontknow:

Hi have a new Lester 12v alternator (according to the label) that gives out 28 volts?

I wondering if there is a mod or a wire link that is missing to bring the output down to 14 volts or does this new alternator just have the wrong label???
