1987 Escort GT 1.9L HO (1.6 Head Currently) / 1982 Mercury Lynx RS
Got the 87 GT running, she's a blast to drive but the battery light is on, big ol red light on the cluster. I'm gonna assume the Alternator or connectors are bad on that but the Tachometer is stuck at 0, hasnt moved except once which was just a little bump. being my FIRST manual car I'd like to know what I'm doing and also use it for checking sound at different RPMS. its a bit of a pain cause when the car is on it reads 14.2 volts at the battery but it died before i parked it and the battery is drained after a quick drive around the block.
