I have an "External" alternator original setup:

As suggested, I unbolted the volt reg from firewall, removed the ground, then reconnected the hot wire harness and the ign fuse did NOT blow.

After removing the volt reg, I inspecting the back of it and it looks pretty darn corroded and rusted!

So, it wouldn't be that expensive to replace the volt reg at this point.

Would it make sense to test the HEI dizzy module at this point. Would it be a valid module test without the volt reg installed, or should I wait to run the module test after replacing the volt reg.?
