    Arrow Maintenance

    Just completed the bi-annual (spring and fall) battery maintenance. This consists of cleaning the battery after removing it, cleaning clamps, checking connections, then charging the battery with a Battery Tender. Everyone should know how a Smart Charger works, in that it pushes the normal charge well beyond to 80% the alternator normally (or should) keeps it at. Increases capacity, CCA, cleans the plates and increases longevity. Marauder is happy. Mustang's battery hooked up at the moment.

    Had to install a new battery as the old one was crapping out on me. Started it up yesterday and had a hard time cranking up. Popped hood and could see some corrosion around the positive terminal. Cleaned it off with baking soda/water mix and a tooth brush. Leaving the house today to meet a friend for lunch and again, hard to crank up. After lunch stopped at Auto Zone and their battery tester said battery was bad. Battery was somewhere between 6 and 7 years old, so not that surprised it finally crapped out.

    Engine bay looks nice! A bit of background would be interesting, along with some dyno numbers.
