1970 Chevelle Voltage Regulator

I just finished restoring my 1970 Chevelle LS6. The issue I have is when I use the appropriate regulator as stated in the AIM (1119515), the car does not charge and when the lights are turned on the system discharges with the engine running. I had a 1119519 so I put that in and the car started charging. Both regulators work I had them tested, does anyone have an idea as to why this is the case? I have an 837 alternator and a reproduction R79S side terminal battery.

I do not think your AMP gauge is part of this problem.

The problem is, "new" and/or "tested" really means nothing anymore.

If the charging system is performing properly with all of the same components except for the swaping of two different voltage regulators, the obviously one regulator is not working properly.
