Duke- About the only thing I can think of that would allow the gen to drop out
at higher rpms are the brushes are about worn out or one of the brush springs
is so weak it allows the brush to loose contact at higher rpms.I have a newly
rebuilt unit and they are available locally as many where used on Tractors and
Im in farm country. A decent alt/generator/starter shop should fix you up
cheaply. Least wise the chaps I use here are very fair. I recently had two
alternators from a S3 rebuilt - my generators but going on a friends S2. $35
each and nither worked prior to them opening them up- Im not sure what all
they did besides bearing in one but at todays prices I was happy. I can get
you a price on a unit here- not sure if its new or rebuilt BUT it would be
heavy to ship.

    I'm sure you have looked at this but be sure the belt is properly
tightened, if slipping at 3800 rpm the voltage will fall off.

A voltmeter is really all you need to measure what's going on, an ammeter
helps some too.

Take the cover off the regulator and make sure the points are not all
crusted up.

There are some regulator settings listed on page 20 of the Shop Manual.

I always seem to have some problems with the generator system on my Tiger so
I did an alternator conversion.

Now that my car is up and running again, I need to address those niggling

My generator drops off line over ~3800 rpm.  If I let the engine return to
idle it comes back on line.

I took a look at the manual and there is not any info on how to correct this
nor do I have the test equipment described.
