Okay this is second hand but. Im not sure if its a quark or a problem witht he mod engines or what.

Dad said he was coming home and the engine just died, the radio just died. So he played with the wires on th ebattery (small red one was loos) and it just fired right up.

So with it firing right up that eliminates a bad alternator and the battery being dead.

So could it have been loose and shorted causing it to die?

i found it nvm.

While doing the shocks i was checking down to the starter, and there was a rub in the wires going to the starter, causing a short and it dieing. I rigged it until we can get a new cables.
Little bit of loom, some electrical tape, and some zip ties and a bracket moddifications
