Re: Friends 67 having electrical issues
Glad you got it running and all should be normal.
You will probably measure charging voltage across the battery posts and this is a good thing. But, how much charging 'current' is the battery receiving? Kind of like a water-saving faucet, lots of line pressure (voltage), but very little flow (current) due to the orifice in the faucet head. Somewhere between the alt BATT stud and battery post, and ground side also, could be some resistance in the wiring and/or teminals or a broken crimp to reduce current flow.
Harbour Freight sells a cheap 50-0-50 ammeter for around $10 or 50% off with coupon, then $5, and you can insert it between the positive pigtail and junction block for test. Battery will draw close to 30-40 amps right after using the starter, then level off. Over 15-20 minutes, might draw 5-8 amps depending upon charge originally.
