May 13, 2004well my dad has this 85 chevy diesel that finally died, he smoked the tranny in it and we finaggled and i get to part it out, i was looking at it and it has a dual battery system, so i took the batteries out, took the cables and on the positive cable it went from positive terminal to pos. terminal and then branched offf to starter solenoid and then to some other power thing, so i put a battery tray in my drivers side fender and put the battery in there, i attached the ground to the fender, then i ran the positve to positive and then to power, it works great!!!!! i now have nearly 2000 cca and now i have an extra battery to power my winch if i ever get one!!!!
oh and if anyone wants parts off of the diesel, it has dual 10 bolt axles with the six lug pattern, aluminum mag wheels with decent street rubbers, good glass except windshield, decent interior and some motor parts, it has a/c, ps, pb, auto doors, excellent bumpers, bedrails, decent bed except for wheel wells, lots of trim and tons of misc. things, make an offer, its complete except for the dual battery system
