I have problem with the battery draining overnight. I found that if I unplugged the regulator the problem didn't occur. I also noticed that with the key off, the alternator field appears to stay energized. I was working around the alternator and found that my screw driver was attracted to the pulley, and it was warm to the touch. I don't believe this is normal. Both the alt and regulator are new. Any ideas ?

Apparently, the field relay or circuit, if electronic inside, is set too tight. You might take the reg to Advance Auto and have them test it.

Just had this same thing happen on my 67 - same symptoms - turned out to be the alternator - old style externally regulated alternator - took alternator back to Advance and got a new one and working perfectly now.
