Re: Not Charging!!!!!

Could be a bad voltage regulator.

Re: Not Charging!!!!!

Sounds like a typical parts thrower. Did you test anything ? Do you have B+ voltage ?
Do you have Field voltage ? Light or gauge ? Makes a difference. Full flow amp gauge or
shunted volt meter? also makes a difference. Some charging systems are fused. Is yours ? How could you possibly test an electronic regulater ? Remember that an alternator will not charge a dead battery. If you have changed an alternator and regulator for no reason you have spent almost the same amount of money to have it professionally repaired. You might want to return your new alt and reg. but i dought that will ever happen. Fix your wiring problem. No offence but you don't know what your doing. Your own words. You will spend money you don't need to. Send it out. Good luck.
