This question isn't actually about an LBC, but the answer should 
be the same. I have an older Little German Car which has a volt 
meter installed. I just replaced the DOT standard sealed beam 
head lamps with a pair of E-code halogen head lamps, with 60/55 
watt H4 bulbs . At road speed (about 2800 RPM), when I turn on 
the new head lamps, the voltage reading plunges from about 13.5 
volts to just over 12 volts. Is this an indication that my generator is 
not keeping up with the demand, and would replacing it with an 
alternator help out?
