    Maybe a dumb question re the 8A alternator rating - is that the max the alternator is capable of producing? Or is that merely a thermal limit, beyond which the alternator would damage its self? ...

    Ok, well, I have egg on my face. Again.

    1. I did NOT measure from an alternator ground post to ground. I measured from the ground terminal on the regulator, and that runs about 0 to 0.2 ohm,...

    Pull off that sheet metal channel, Charlie. It's just a couple hours work if it's all right underneath. Then clean and re-prime with weld-thru zinc primer. It Could be a big deal if ignored.
