Sounds like V/R might have a bad ground. 15.5 is a touch bit high. 14.8 is at the top of the range for GM products I believe and 15.5 is topped off for Chrysler. I would have to clean and grease the V/R ground and see what you get.

Thanks, I thought that the voltage may have been a bit high. I'll go through the suggestions for adjusting the regulator and see if that fixes the problem. Duner do you own an MG? Just wondering. I do and use Barney's site all of the time. Didn't think to go there since I've converted my MG to an alternator. Thanks again.

MG. I would have to shrink down no less than 6 inches and about 90 pounds. Even if I lost the 90, I still won't fit.
MG. Lucas electric. Beware the dark side Luke...

Thanks again guys. I have a '58 MGA and you're right, it is small, low to the ground and small quarters. I'm 6'1" and about 210 but have no difficulty getting in & out. Fun to drive and has nice lines. My 1st car was an MG and I've driven many British sports cars over the years. Anyway, I'm getting off topic. I am going to check out the VR tomorrow and hopefully will be able to resolve the overcharging issue. Thanks again, Ron
