Re: alt light comes on at idle.
gen light came back on. pulled out the multi meter and it was reading 16.2 , 3 , 4 and climbing. tried a big ground wire to the firewall and motor. no change. regulator is bolted directly to the core support, I even sanded to paint off.
Gave up, went and bought a internally regulated 63 amp alt. jumped the blue and brown wire, jumped post 2? to the battery terminal, hooked the wire wire to post 1? started it, no gen light, 14.4 volts with lights on or off at the battery. I'm done! jim
