Is your bulb burned out? IF your getting 16+ volts with a new reg..... might be your alt. Get it ck'd at the parts in a box store. If it is and you're gonna get a new one....might think about converting over to an internal regulated alt..... super easy to do and possibly the best thing I've done for my old girl. Basicly putting in two jumpers, a new pig tail and throwing the old reg away.

Remove the wires from the regulator plug, Splice the Blue wire to the brown wire. Splice the white wire to the red wire. Change out the Alt pigtail. Run a new 10 (8 peferably) gauge wire from the Rad support junction splice over to the horn relay. I was amazed at how bad the orig wire on mine was melted/deformed, I replaced it with 2ea 10 gauge wires from the junction to the horn relay.......good to go.
