Charge the battery to at least 12.6v and then do an alternator output test.
With a multimeter connected to the battery terminals you should be getting
14.2-14.8v at 4K rpm. Less than 14.2v and you may have a problem (dirty
connections, alternator brushes, etc). More than 14.8v and you'll need to
replace the regulator.
For convenience, use the starter relay terminal for the Pos (+) connection
on the tester when you check the charging system.
Do you have a shop manual?
