because I cannot get above 11.5 volts, I've replaced starter, regulator, battery...nothing gets it above 11.5, auto zone checks alternator, checks out and besides, they don't have the replacement.If everything is stock then why add the complications of one wire alternators. They can be rather pissy on the street where low RPM gearing and typical engine operation is the norm.
For an as built factory stock car this is just an unneeded complication.
It's flat out not charging....alternator is not working or wired incorrectly.I replaced with one wire, still right at 12, 11.5 if anything is turn on.
I noticed something; if I slightly move the ignition one way or other, volts change and range from 11.5 ro 12.2.
