I had that problem once and think it was a sensing wire at the VR telling the gauge there was no juice, I do not work on the generators much, mostly change things to Alternators, The Chet side has a button under the dash that you push after you start it and the light goes out? was like that when Phil and I got it from Vairchet, I forget what he said it did?

Hmm...
Swapped out the VR for another and the damn light still glows bright.
Maybe I'll add a ground wire to the already grounded VR.

With this nagging lifter knocking (when cold) I'm about ready to try the ATF trick. Unfortunately,I spent too much scratch on the fresh Amsoil and dont want to throw it out.

And you would have to throw it out........why? I've drained freshish oil into a clean catch pan many times to replace a pan gasket. Drain your Amsoil, do your Jeritol treatment, and reinstall.

Doesn't the geritol treatment require engine oil?

You may just have a bad lifter. I have ran across new lifters that will never pump up. Probably 3 out of 100 fail rate, over the years. Regardless of the brand and supplier.

You need SOMETHING that is for sure ! ! !
I believe the unspoken part was that, . . . AFTER you drain the Expensive Amsoil, you would then fill the engine with the cheapest oil you have, along with your ATF and what ever other voo-doo chemicals you desire and do your magic.

Baby steps.

Performed the longest trip,today.
45 miles.
No heat.
No turn signal.

Left the OC and headed to Colton for a bunch of my stashed parts that have been taking up space in a buddies old barn I used to rent.
No heat.
Clutch is beginning to slip in 3rd.
Looks like it's time for the 4speed swap.

One of the most beautiful days,ever.

Coolest thing on the road! And who needs a ramp - more space on which to rest a cold can of PBR!
