65 Alternator

Had a "battery" problem today that I think is alternator related. How difficult is it to replace the original alternator/regulator setup with an alternator with integrated regulator?

Re: 65 Alternator

I think if you go here it'll answer a few questions - It is about 10 posts below yours.
There are conflicting points of view on how to do it, but all versions will work..

Here is how I did my original Shelby and 2 other early Mustangs. I went to this site...

It all made some sense to me and seemed to work just fine...

Re: 65 Alternator

Not sure what you mean by a "battery" problem (with the usage of quotes)...

The first thing you should do is get to the root of the problem.

Is it the alternator? Time to check.

You need to measure the voltage at the battery terminals with the engine running. Ideal voltage is between 13.8 volts and 14.2 volts.
