Well alternator is up where it belongs. Try measuring the headlight connectors while they are still dim. Voltage should be around the same as you see at the battery. Should be able to get at the backside of the right one. Beginning to think you have a poor connection at the lights or a poor ground to them. It's a matter of chasing the problem little.
Idle problem may be something else.

Perhaps. Both the interior and headlights get a ground through the - battery cable to the inside right fender. I can guess on this end but you need to measure around on your end. The interior light information may be helpful, but don't yet have a positive answer.
