Second, replaced alternator voltage regulator and brushes with new ones, but left old diodes.
After starting the engine, it was good a little bit, but one of the head lights gone soon after, then voltage dropped down, the only head light and instrument lights dimmed and a weak " battery light" came up again all with the engine was still running.
I think the regulator is ok, because it's supposed to limit high voltages not lows.
My question is, if it's the cause of worn out stator/rotor windings or armature's collectors?
Or it's not alternator's problem?
have the same problem?
