possible that you need a ground wire from frame to engine
i too am a fan of the 1 wire alternator and suggest you keep a spare diode pack and regulator on hand
buy the good diode pack, i forget what the nomenclature is but it's made for the 100-140 apm alt
i believe eod guy helped me out when i went thru 2 oreillys rebuilds in as many weeks
i now keep spares with me on long runs, i can replace parts in a few minutes
