Re: Mounting of the Voltage Regulator & Brand Recommendation ??
Good, as a battery gets warmer and VR gets warmer, charging voltage might be around 13.8 volts. With lights on, blower on,idling, voltage will be battery voltage as VR/alt can't keep up, until revs are given. Normal indications. you could have left it at 15 volts, older Fords had 15 volt charging voltage. Batteries made today can take the higher voltage.
Tuning of the charging system depended upon condition of battery, and keeping an eye on elctrolyte level, remember the older batteries? You could boil them over, too much charge voltage, or, low battery charge, not enough charging. Checking battery level was one of the full-service features at a gas station back when these cars were built until '73, 10SI was invented.
