So I have a mildly built 302…f303 cam… I’m on my second alternator… I’m wondering from the gurus on this forum, is my cam killing my alternator… is it not getting the proper idle rotation for the alternator to work properly? Reason I ask, I drove my car for less than 20 minutes today, keep in mind it was idling for awhile as I did some work to it, and I was letting the engine warm up before I took it down the road. Pulling back into my shop, after a run time of about 40 minutes max, the battery was dead. Brand new battery, never had any issues out of it till today. It is a stock oem alternator from “oreallys”…. My nickname for them because everytime I order parts to my shop, I’m left saying “oh really, the wrong part” lmao. Anyway…. Someone help me out. Should I be running something different?
