I have a 1969 rs that has been converted to a z28 very poorly. The charging system will only turn on manually. I noticed that the idiot light bulb and socket are missing. Wondering if that could cause the alt. to not turn on. thank you for any help.
It depends on how it was converted to internal if it has been. I prefer a light to tell me the alternator is charging. I don't know how the "one" wire alternators work, nor so I care to find out. The wiring changes to set up an internal regulator alternator with a working light are fiarly simple IMHO.
