I saw a small motor in Behrent's catalog that is used to drive the water pump. Since the stock radiator already has an electric fan and we need every horse we can get out of a little 4 cylinder,here's what I am considering: Install the electric motor for the water pump, remove the alternator completely, and install a fully charged deep cycle battery. I figure total run time for warm ups, heats, and features with extended cautions shouldn't be more than 45 minutes and a deep cycle should be able to handle that and maintain voltage.
Am I nuts, or do you think it will work?
