I posted a while back that my '67 Camaro will only show 11.62 volts whether the engine is running or not. The following is what I've done and maybe you guys can tell me what to do next.
I do not have a battery drain. I ran a test light in parallel with the positive post on the battery and the light does not come on. I replaced the alternator, voltage regulator and battery (900cca). Check voltage from all three and still have 11.62 volts comming from each. When I start the engine the voltmeter also shows approx. 11.5 volts. I have checked all engine and body ground straps. Also check ground wire from negative battery post to fender. All were good. As best that I can remember, this started after I replaced the in-dash fuel gauge with a in-dash tach. I also replaced the printed circuit board at the same time. I did notice that when ever I turn my signal lights on, the neddle on the voltgauge jumps between 10.5 - 11.5 volts with the binker. Any further ideas would be appreciated.
