with a voltmeter, check the voltage at the main stud coming out of the alternator and a ground location (the bracket will do)....you should get a regulated 13.5-14.5 volts....just the battery alone should have 12.5 volts without the alternator~

First make sure you have voltage at large wire at alt. and it is tight.If its ok,disconnect connector from back of alt. start vehc. take test light and hook leed to neg. side of battery. ck. for power at one of the wires in connector. if ok, hook leed to positive side of batt. ck other wire in connector. light should light up. if all tests ok. alt. is bad
