Will be in Moab tonight, given I can leave. Last night my engine just died on me while I was playing with the voltage regulator. It appears that the wiring for the idle circuit solenoid died, so I will probably have to run direct power from the battery unless I see something obvious in daylight...

Also it doesn't seem like my system is charging at all, stemming from my dorking with the VR the other night I can only presume, as it was working just fine before that. The other night I was messing with the gap between the points (thinking that that adjusted the voltage), and it was changing the voltage, but reading through the FSM it looks like that was the wrong thing to be adjusting, so hopefully I didn't screw something up...:rolleyes:

Does the laser beam have a shark attached? :-)

Matt, good luck and Godspeed! I'll be in Weds!

Good news! Got it figured out. When I was dorking with my VR I shorted it out accidently which blew the Engine Fuse. This meant that the Idle Circuit Solenoid lost power and shut the engine off. It also made any changes to the VR inconsequential, and as UB last night I was just seeing battery voltage. So I replaced the fuse, got my idle back, and then I was able to make proper adjustments to the VR. It's around 13.5V at idle, 14.8V high idle, and up to 15.3V at high rpm. But as of now problem is fixed and I'm off to finish packing and get outta here! :thumb:
