Re: Testing No Charging problem
Thirty-five ohms is good.
Key buzzer on with key out and goes off with door closed means the socket in the tumbler is always closed.
Lower charging voltage when running may mean VR needs adjusting.
Engine off, remove VR cover, lengthen the spring on the regulator to increase voltage.
Replace cover, run engine and let VR come up to temp, 130°-140°, and approx charge voltage around 13.8 volts. Trial & error adjustment.
Quick check on how heavy alt is working is place a screwdriver flat across rear bearing.
Light pull, low charge, heavy pull, heavy charge.
Harbour Freight sells a 50-0-50 ammeter for $10 to use as a truobleshooting aid either for the alt BATT stud or battery junction block, depending on the circuit you want to measure. Higher volts out, more current, hotter alt casing.
You drive it out here to the Beach and I'll fix it.
