ALt Light stays on
Hi Gents and Thanks for the advise and reading material over the years. I'm finally getting around and trying to get back on the road in my 67 RS 327. I just put in a new ALtenator and Voltage regulator, & Horn Relay, but it's been so many years and can't remember what I did over the years trying to fix charging problems in this car. I just took the alternator up to Autozone and it bench tested OK according to the machine.
The ALT Idiot light stays on now. I'm not getting the expected 14.7 volts. I do have my Helms manual and have been trying to do some of the tests it outlines. I checked the voltage at the # 4 wire at the regulator with the key on and get 12 volts.
The regulator is mounted with these rubber stand offs. I don't understand why, I thought the regulator needs to be grounded. Is this stock and should I just put a ground wire to the screw with the condenser on it?
The #3 & #4 wire on the regulator has fusable link wires on it. What;s the best way to check these?
The POS bat terminal wire goes to the junction block, but I must have just put a wire to it. I read in one of the postings that this needs to be a fusable link. Can you tell me where I can get one and what should it be rated for?
Is there a way to test the coil? Sorry for so many questions, I'll try to get this resolved befor I move forward with the hide-aways.
Need all the help I can get.
