One thing I know, when I lost my alternator pulley on the first day of a 1500 mile drive and had no charging system at all, I just finished the trip driving in daylight so I didn't need to run the headlights, and charging the batteries with a little 5 amp charger overnight at a camp site.  The mechanical engine uses basically zero electricity once it's started.  I'm a big fan of mechanical.  To me, today's vehicles are disposable.  The days of restoring a vintage car are gone - once the data-bus wiring and sensors/switches start to go, you can basically toss the car away.  Even the door locks and windows are controlled by the computer.

I have an EPROM burner and blank chips. I'll be glad to burn copies if anyone needs them. I'm in the Dallas area if that helps but I could ship them anywhere.

I don't mean to hijack this thread, but I would love to find a better chip for my '87 DDEC-I 6v92 if anyone has any info about where to find one!

Thanks,
Andy
