[DML] Re: regulator problem?



Be sure the blades on fuse #5 are clean. Also check the connections on 
the alternator and the alternator belt tension. Since it has "jumped" 
to proper volts a couple of times - I would suspect some connections. 
Have you checked the grounds? Especially the ground connected to the 
frame from the battery.

Normally voltage is just above the 13V mark on the voltmeter in the 
instrument cluster. It was dropping close to the orange mark midway 
between the 8V and 13V lines. Not good, I was thinking. Parked it for 
the nite.
