I took the alternator to have it tested.
I had to tell the boy at O'Reilly how to hook it up.
It passed with flying colors.
I started checking the wiring and found the Field connector at the alternator wasn't making good contact.
I made a new connector for the Field stud now, All is right with the world again.
