I own a 69 Chevelle SS396. Whenever I turn on the lights with the engine running, all the lights(dash lights also) flicker. Do I have a bad ground?

Yes, it's at idle and lower rpm. Once I get moving it levels out.

I believe it is only at idle or low rpm, but I do remember it flickering while I was driving also. Just to be safe, what would the cause be in both instances?

I used flickering for lack of another term. They pulsate when engine is running. I turn the engine off and the lights are o.k. Is a mech. regulator another term for the volt. regulator?

Thanks everyone, I bought the Wells VR715 today. I was sitting around thinking about this and I apologize for not mentioning it, but last summer I installed a MSD distributor, coil, 6A ignit. box, and a Holley elec. fuel pump. I believe this is when my pulsating lights started. I read about the cs alt. conversion. This should my next step right? I have one of those autozone alt in there now(stop laughing). Thanks again
