Thanks for the idea. A little sandpaper, some WD-40 and a skosh more idle speed may fix the problem.

4 Jaw Chuck What's your idle speed? Sometime raising it a little is all you need.

horvath 31 years can do a lot of things to wires, eh? MAYBE there's a weak connection somewhere?

Nick Davis Thanks for the tip. My car has an integral voltage regulator, but I'll see what develops.

Thanks again.

P.S. Years ago, tracking down problems used to be a lot easier!

Voltage Drop

I have a '72 442 convertible I purchased new. When I use one electrical accessory such as the power windows when another is running, the accessory seems to run slightly dim or slowly. The alternator output and battery output seem to be okay. Could a 31-year old wiring harness have an increasingly high voltage drop? That's a little more complex for me to check.

Thanks for any experience.
