Re: Lost Power
Alternator on the Z/28's are designed to output the most 37 amps. So with a low state of charge battery and lights on with idling, the battery never gets enough charge put back into it.
What you might do is if you want to keep the external regulated alternator, get one of higher oputput, say 55 amp or another 10DN alt from an Olds/Pontiac, seems there are a couple out there with 61 amp alt, and use a Wells P/N VR715 ext reg, electronic style. If you want to keep the physical look, transfer the mechanical black case from original VR to the new reg to keep it looking OE. All is Plug & Play.
Make sure the belt is tight, maybe a new one.
