Re: charging 15.5 volts
Use your DMM and place it across the voltmeter terminals to see if the gauge matches the meter. Sometimes a gauge made on a Friday afternoon or first thing Monday morning will be out in left field.
If the two do match, then the regulator might need adjusted. After 10 minutes of running, to charge the battery back up from starting the engine, turn on the lights, and heater motor. At 2000 rpm, voltage should not be below 13.8 volts. However, no accessories on, voltage should not exceed 14.8 volts.
Remember, the hotter temp the battery, the less voltage needed to recharge.
You might get a Wells VR715 reg and replace the mechanical reg. Problems will be over.
