Charging issues

Hey everyone I have an issue with the charging system , battery always drained , I put 2 new alternators , new batteries , and I even went as far as changing the whole wiring harness because the old one was all hacked up , thought that could be the issue , but was only part of it I'm guessing , has anyone else had this issue ... Not sure if it could be because the car idles funny due to have a huge cam ?

If you have UD pullies thats probably the issue. Do you use Dielectric grease on your connections? It's good for corrosion resistance and good connections. CHECK YOUR GROUNDS! good luck buddy

Definately check all your grounds and other connectors, alot of times that is the issue. And Die grease is a good idea anytime on electrical connectors. Keeps water an corrosion out. And i would def toss the UD pulleys. For the 2hp u gain, its not worth a slower alt, an water pump. They need to be spun at original speeds to keep battery charged, an car running cool. Just my opinion tho. Hope u fig it out man. Electrical issues are always a pain

Get rid of your UD pulleys or put your stock alt pulley back on
