One of those reconditioning type chargers from Canadian tire seem to work well.
    Thanks Cruizer;
    I bought a new battery today.
    I talked to a friend , He mentioned the rectifier- regulator may be shot ?
    The alt- bat. gauge is not showing a lot of charging, a little below the mid-point on the gauge.

    Dead Battery ?

    I bought a new battery last May ( 2014 ) for my Lincoln Ranger 8, Well now it's dead again.
    I noticed the Amp. meter doesn't seem to be showing it charging like normal.
    What would cause that to happen ?
