Re: Alternator Install - blue/yellow connections
You're welcome. Yes, good charging voltage usually doesn't appear until after 1800 rpm, 13.5 volts.
Don't throw away the old regulator. It can be freshed up. Remove the cover, polish the contact points with emery paper, and readjust the voltage setting, if needed.
Nothing lower than 13.5 at idle, no load, ign only, to 14.8 volts at 3500 rpm, no load. With lights on, heater on, and wipers on, 13.2 volts at idle. Battery helps in providing the current needed at low rpm, higher rpm, alt recharges the battery. It never ends. You could replace the mechanical regulator for an electronic next time, Wells VR715.
