reach. It is a one hand job but definitely doable and worth the change. 
Before the ground bus, my voltage meter read with a constant angle down. 
Now it reads where it should, constant up in the high 13Vdc range. And 
it does not change with load changes. Note that this is only the reading 
and the voltage out of the alt has not changed. It does reflect the poor 
nature of the ground including the fuel pump and voltage gauge.

One can wonder what that poor ground was doing relative to the fuel pump 
and fuel pump circuit. Maybe it can be implicated in the melted #7 fuse. 
Maybe it fixed my periodic dying and later coming back to life D.
