    The negative battery cable should go to the engine block or frame. The positive cable should go to the large terminal on the starter solenoid.

    Before you go swapping things I would look to see how things are actually wired up. It's hard to believe that the alternator stud would be connected to ground. Are you sure the battery you got has...

    Oh, I didn't catch that! The wire from the stud on the alternator should go to the POSITIVE side of the battery! The alternator is grounded to the engine. But I don't understand where the current...

    Looks like you could use a new battery tray while you're at it. ;)

    First of all, welcome to the site and congrats on getting a 57 2DHT. :cool:

    I would disconnect the wire from the alternator and see if it still sparks or gets hot when hooked up to the battery. ...

    I don't understand why you would need a check valve after the mechanical pump. Isn't the outlet valve of the pump essentially a check valve? If fuel is draining back, it seems to me that the pump...

    The point is......check and make sure the tank is getting vented. My filler neck has this notch in it. It's not hard to imagine that it could get plugged with a soft cap gasket, dirt buildup, or...

    Do you have a vented cap on your fuel tank? These tanks aren't vented and they need to have a vented cap or you can create a vacuum in the tank from pump suction or temperature changes.

    Thanks Robert, I wish I'd known about that Steele Rubber part earlier. It even has the holes punched and clips installed, which none of the others have. I bought a set of clips but they make you...

    Time is flying by but I have tried to keep going on the Nomad. I decided to wait on the hood seal until the hood is on, then I'll use a ball of clay to see how much room I have for the seal and...

    And once again Ricky starts his typical bullshit. GMvette started the crap by saying the wheels should be "centered", whatever the hell that means. How the hell do you "center" a wheel in a...

    In other words, you don't care for lowered cars that almost everyone today has and the resulting improvement in handling. I get it now. I thought you meant wheels not centered fore and aft. Most...

    Who are you talking to? Nobody said anything about wheels not being centered so where are you getting that?

    For reference this is 17s (245/45-17 tires) on the front and 18s (295/35-18 tires) on the rear of my Nomad. The front has a 3" suspension drop and the rear about 2". I personally think that the...

    Why do you think there's a clearance problem? You can put just about any diameter wheel on the car with no clearance problems, if the tire OD is the same. In fact, larger wheels make it easier to...

    I have no idea. If they're from the same years, 1992-2002, it's possible they used the same seat tracks as the Eldorado. The Eldorado tracks are aluminum, they're about 15" center to center. You...

    Looks great Mike. I don't even think the rear needs to be lowered myself. I can't imagine moving that far. :eek: I was in NZ in 1996 and loved the place. Are you on the north or south island?
