Post 5000rpm alternator!

I have a 69 chevelle and recenlty bought a new chrome plated alternator for my SB 327 and now i have replaced my battery too. I have a volt meter in my car and the only time my car starts to charge the battery at 14 volts when running is when i put it in neutral and rev it to 5 or 6 grand. I dont know why this is. the alternator is the one positive wire hookup. Is there adjustments on the alternator or what could it be? Also, is my alternator overcharging, because my old stock one charged at 14 too and i am wondering if that is correct or not?
