I use a Optima yellow top for 5 years now with good results but not sure of capacity however I do run extra power amp for music and couple of other things, in Phoenix AZ heat is a killer on lead acid batteries usually 2-3 years before I need to replace. The Alt Regulator I installed was from Pelican parts which just gave me one part to choose from.
Thanks so out it comes, but I do run a dry cell battery.
Trickled charged overnight however, does the battery have to be out of car to load test?
Yes, I got lazzzy and do have a trickle charger which it has been on since I got back this morning and now that the car is cool I went to start it to check and it jumped up to 14V again? I was going to check voltage at the battery but multimeter digits started acting up and could not read....go figure. Maybe brushes not seating properly not driving enough etc anybody's guess at this point.
Thanks, I'll try my alternator guy see what he come up with. The reason is my symptoms are the same ones experienced with my Toyota, not showing a 13+ volts at battery with new Alt Regulator when running and draining battery when car not used and ended up replacing the bridge and solved problem. My Pcar has sat for a month and the battery was dead and when I got it started it registered close to 14v, but when I got on the freeway it registered 12v and I had replaced the "alt regulator" about 6 month's ago with very little miles put on in that time. I am going to take the Alt to O'rielly auto parts and have them check it which "I believe" they can tell me if it is the REG or Bridge so I am just being prepared.
I have a 2000 996 manual and am wondering if they make a "rectifier bridge" replacement or if it can be replaced at all for the alternator, if so what is the PN#. I have replaced the regulator so I know they produce a replacement for it.
Mother started following 996 Side Skirts & Rear Spoiler?, Alternator rectifier bridge, What is the best engine oil for the very warm areas? and and 2 others
Nope... I run 15-50w ... Phx heat is extreme: Example, I stopped at a stop light couple years ago at an intersection and it was 145 degree's F at that spot.

Hah! You should have known I would be lurking and yes I gave you time to edit!! All in fun.and yes still trying to get mine tuned!! ha!
A little clarification...VF SC kits have been implemented for over 10 years with great results on stock engines and emissions are dependent of individual states.
+ 1 for PP&G paints and clear coats.

Mother replied to Mother's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Found it sorry for the bother. bore and stroke of 96mm x 78mm
Mother posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a 2000 996 3.4 ltr and was wondering what the Bore and Stoke was in MM on this engine please if anyone can fill in my mistakes or on the data needed to check this HP Converter much appreciated. Kinda fun however I need to find out the "Bore and Stroke" in MM to figure out my timing with a Supercharged engine.
