I passed on the deal since they did not want to drop the price any. I asked them some of the questions you folks brought up. They were not to convincing on their answers as to the spline issue. " I'm sure there's no problem" which means " I don't know". There's always some other Vulcans to look at down the road. I especially want to thank you for the tips on fixing the charging system issues so when I do find one, I'll know what to look for. Great forum !!!
