Need Van's instruments/ Alternator advice
Something burned up several of my Van's engine instruments; CHT, EGT, fuel quantity, fuel pressure, oil temp and pressure. I saw Stein at Oshkosh and he said he had several he had removed for panel upgrades. He generously gave me some of the ones I need. I still need CHT and EGT as well as the low pressure fuel gauge. If anyone has some laying around gathering dust, I am interested in them.
Also, is there anything other than a malfunctioning voltage regulator and/or alternator that could have caused the damage? I hate to just replace parts looking for a problem. I have a Japanese, internally regulated alternator that is putting out 14.2 volts. I don't think a test at the auto parts store will show a problem. Is there a way to test the regulator or a simple way to add overvoltage protection?
