Re: Couple of electrical questions
Depends upon the battery state of charge.
If it is low, then yes, charge voltage wiil be high.
Run the car, let the VR cover get to 130įF, then measure again, s/b around 13.5 volts.
You can set the regulator by removing the cover, lengthening the spring - increases voltage, or shorten the spring - decreases voltage. Always replace the cover and let the VR recover in temperature to get a good reading.
Monitor the battery for a week, and dependent upon charge, make adjustments accordingly. Just like back in the '60's & '70's.
Or, just replace the VR with a Wells P/N VR715 electronic reg, plug & play. Don't forget the ground strap on the mounting bolt.
