Hey guys, I'm a newbie to these forums and would like to say that there are some great posts. I have a 1972 El Camino that has the gen. idiot light on constantly. It has been this way ever since my alternator shorted one night and fried my fusible link at the starter. I have replaced the alternator, the starter/selenoid was replaced about 3 weeks before that, and i ran new wire to from the alternator to the voltage regulator(which was also replaced). When i stick a volt meter to the battery, i get around 12 volts, usually a little under. My only question is where do i look for the problem. It is a 350 and has an hei dist. The only thing i could think might be causing a problem is i used the 12v pink wire from the ignition to power the hei, but ive read that that is the best way to do it. Thanks in advance.
