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.

Question:
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.?
