Hello, I have a 67 Chevelle with an externally rated alternator. I have the solid state voltage regulator. I have ran this setup for about 3 or 4 years. These past couple of days I’ve been experiencing intermittent charging. I would be driving or idling and the voltage will go from 12 to 14 and I thought my voltage gauge was incorrect but the I checked the voltage at the battery and it’s fluctuating. All my connections appear clean and tight and I’ve never experienced an issue like this before. I’m assuming my alternator is dying on me but I’m not sure and I don’t want to waste going out and buying one if I don’t need it. Is there any way I can pinpoint the problem whether it be in the wiring, the voltage regulator, or the alternator? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.
