Alternator charging at 18 volts....


Recommended Posts

I have had my mechman alternator for a couple years, Tonight I noticed a strange reading on my volt meter and the smell of rotten eggs. I shut everything off and quickly got the car home, pulled out dmm and I'm getting 18 volts with the car on. Did the internal regulator take a shit? What are my options?

If the alt is the same style as the stock one it might work. I don't know what modifications mechmen makes when they build. I would contact them and they might be able to send you the regulator.

My singer went bad and I took the alt to a local shop to replace the regulator. I don't have it anymore but last I heard it was still working

If u still have your stock ALT u could pull both regulators out but at that point might as well put the stock ALT back on until u get a new regulator . I would pull out the H.O . Regulator and look at the brushes to see how they are worn I'm betting there pretty much gone.

My wifes nephew had a late 90s Oldsmobile (or something) that the alt ran away on. he said the headlights were really bright and he kept driving it until they blew. he drove it home and said the battery was boiling over. he put a new alt in and luckily it didn't fry the computer.
