Re: Battery relocate pictures.
Ext reg alt? System working normal. By its design, the Delcotron was the hot ticket. The mech reg has too much swing. You can adjust them up to 14.8 VDC with only engine running at 1800-2000 rpm, but turn on headlamps, heater, wipers, and idle, voltage is around battery, 12.5 VDC at best. Give rpm, and it boosts up.
Measure voltage drop from BAT @ alt to battery post, s/b less than 0.4 V., stud to stud/post.
If using a good quality DMM, zero the meter first. Use the length of wire you chose to get to the other end of the car and select DC volts on the meter. Take the length of wire and the other meter lead and hold the ends together. Meter will indicate some voltage under a volt. Watch the meter count down to zero, may take a minute or two. As soon as zero is obtained, measure voltage drop of power cable.
Before doing anything drastic, such as changing pulley, change mech regulator for a Wells P/N VR715 regulator and tell us the results.
