As mentioned in my previous post, my regulator went bad and I installed a new one.
After a local mechanic did a reading and me cleaning wires, I got the reading up to 13.94 no load and 13.65 with a load.
Unfortuanately, my alt meter is disconnected, so today I installed an AutoMeter brand Voltage guage.
Here is what I notice,
When I turn the key on, it goes to 12, when I start it it goes to 14, when I turn on the lights, radio, etc it drops to a little under 14.
Here is my concern
When I race the engine, it the dash lights flicker and the needle jumps to 15 and sometimes 16 for a few seconds and then drops back to 14. If I hold the accelerator to around 2200 rpms, the needle jumps back and forth between the 16 and 14. But when idling at 1000 rpms, it stays a constant 14
Any ideas ?
