> Yesterday evening my voltmeter sudenly started flickering rapidly, never
got above 12 volts. Is this a bad regulator, generator brushes, or what
else should I look at?
Check the connections to the volt meter.
Seriously, what do the lights do when all this is going on? If all else
seams normal, it could be a defective voltmeter or the wires to it.
You didn't list what car you have but if you have a voltmeter I suspect you
have a late model TR6 or Spit. If so there is a multi-tap on the hot
battery cable with three wires plugged into that and one of these may be
getting intermittent. (I've seen that happen a couple of times)
