Re: Gas leak near steering column

I didn't realize how common an issue this is. Thanks found the links

Re: Verifying charging system on 6V Alternator system

The ammeter shows discharge when lights are turned on with the engine off so should be ok.

Anyone have any suggestions as to quick ways to verify if the charging system is working?
