On my 77 Midget, the alternator is not charging. The warning lamp also is not working. From what I understand, 12V should go through the warning lamp to the brown/yellow wire on the alternator. Is th

Well I found out what's wrong with my brakes. Many of you suggested a bad hose. Man I wish it would've been that. But the wife complained of wet feet, which of course means a bad master cylinder. No
