I had the alternator/regulator tested and the guy says its within limits.
However, I understand that the Lucas is prone to intermittent overcharging.
And I was having a problem with the battery boiling on longer runs, although
that seems to have subsided. I'm thinking about replacing the alternator.
The auto electric guys says there is a new version that is more stable, for
the price of only one arm. On the other hand, some have suggested swapping
in a GM/Delco. But right now I'm thinking about a new one from Spitbits
(think I'll forgo a rebuilt this time). I don't know if the Spitbits
offering is an updated version or not.
Decisions . . . But soon, have long road trip the end of them month.

Basically the system voltage is too high.
