Voltage regulator is indicated; possibly a bad ground as well. Check the main battery ground to engine, engine to firewall grounding strap.

Let me check your shorts!

Agree with Midlife. I recommend a top quality voltage regulator, not one from a chain parts store. I've had the best luck with the late 70's electronic Ford Motorcraft units.

Spot on with Hemikiller's comments. Unless you've got a concours level show car leave the parts house regulators on the shelf. Use Ford # FOPZ-10316-A or Motorcraft GR-540-B. Some part houses like O'rileys handle some Motorcraft and may stock or can order that part if you don't want to go to a dealer.

I had the same problem and I bought a good quality Eckland brand from my NAPA dealer and painted the cover ford blue then put a repo decal on it. Looks great and works great.

Going fast is fun but life is short so slow down and enjoy the ride Big Grin Frank
