I always respect Rick and Soundguy's advice here.
But another thought would be to ask how old is your tach cluster. Do the tach, hour meter, fuel and temp gauges still work.
Those clusters were known for their early failure.
So, because you have a late style block it would not be hard to convert the tach drive to the 5600 style which is driven off the cam under the oil filter.
Then you could use an inexpensive 10SI alternator and have all working gauges plus a reliable/new cluster again - all for about the same price as that alternator with the drive on it.

All true, Jerry. But the charge rate seems normal. An alternator conversion might not accomplish anything.
We need to be sure there isn't a different underlying reason for the boiling battery.

Small potatos here but...
He made a couple of comments/statements about his charging system.
Then he said he was thinking about buying an alternator with the tach drive and asked a question about them.
You went into his charging problems.
I went into the merits of the alternator with the tach drive vs a whole new tach, tach drive and cheaper alternator.
Did I not address his question?

"Did I not address his question?"
Actually, I don't think you did.
I just happen to think that advocating an alternator conversion on the basis of a 14.4V charging rate and a boiling battery might not accomplish much. I am an advocate of troubleshooting before investing, not troubleshooting after the investment doesn't yield results. If you disagree, that's OK.
