You must clean off the flux. It'll suck up moisture and can kill your board in the long run.

Maybe my instructions aren't clear enough. My instructions follow the standard manual, so you do all steps. Where my instructions deviate from megamanual, I provide new instructions. So, if I don't talk about a step, it means you do that step according to the manual.
Basically, follow the manual with my instructions next to it. Replace the manual's steps with my steps .
Mmm, this is even less clear I suppose ...

I do a couple of things differently than most, like the LEDs for instance. I don't need them because I can't see them. If you want them, just add them. It's only a led and a resistor.

If anyone feels like drawing out my circuits 'the proper way', I'll put them up on my site. Seems they cause some confusion, altough they make perfect sense to me .

I'm having trouble with the alternator thing... When the input voltage is applied directly to the alternator circuit, field voltage cuts off exactly at 14.4 volts, but when I apply (and measure) the voltage at the DB37 connector, it cuts off at about 14.2V, and the field is usually 0.1V below the input. Also, I can't seem to get any current, even though I had it yesterday. I'm getting the 12V from the left side of D3. Any suggestions?
