Testing Generator output?
Before replacing my gen or attempting to step up to the alt conversion I would like to figure out if my gen really is bad. The gen light stays on now. I tested at the batt and got about the same voltage with the car off or on.
I have the shop man and can understand the test procedure but it says "generator should reach or exceed its rated output."
I don't know what that is, or what to look for when reading the ammeter. I'm looking at the specs section and it says 30-35 amps @ 15volts. Is this what I should read on my ammeter setting?
thanks for any help,
