dim generator light
Ok, noticed I have a dim generator light on all the time (except when car off).
the battery has 12.4-12.6 volts when off, and 13.6-7 when started, leveling off to 14.0-14.1 after coming up to temp.
Any thoughts on this? I have a one wire alternator, but haven't had a chance to take it off and look at model #'s. The voltage regulator is hooked fine (it would seem).
What do you think would cause the dim generator light? I mean, it is about 1/4 bright vs. full, and is never fully on. Would I just have an alternator type/size mismatch, or could something internally be shot with the alternator etc?
Oh, one other thing, is that the car starts at about 650-700 rpms and is veerry choppy until reaching full temp. I might post this in the engine section, but the ignition is a mallory mech. advance unilite and accel coil. I also have no choke hooked up (100 deg. in my garage cold-AZ!). I have been told that the no choke shouldn't be impacting the setup as much as it is, so do you guys think any of this is related? I might have to start a thread in the engine section, but posted here for now to see if it is related.
