OK--I have two issues that I discovered right about the same time--wondering if they have anything to do with each other.
1. The motor will have slight run-on (only sometimes). At these times, a typical start up immediately after will require the accelerator to be pushed all the way to the floor (as if the carb was flooded). I suppose here, the carb floats could need to be adjusted (not done since the I rebuilt it last year), but I have not had any issues prior to a couple of weeks ago.
2. I installed a new voltage regulator (the solid state kind) a couple of months ago--perfect at 14 volts--I noted that now, the volt meter reads only about 11 volts when the engine is running.
Could these items be related to a bad alternator somehow?
Motor is a 383 stroker, very lumpy idle (max vacuum at idle is about 5 inches), with a Holley 650 DP, and HEI ignition, running about 12-14 BTDC at idle, vaccume removed.
