So was having power issues. Replaced battery, alternator, voltage regulator. Just did the full deal so I would cover the bases. The old alt had positive cable with a splice connected to one of the prongs, the ground wasnt even connected. The old voltage reg was removed and two of the wires were connected together. Seems like prev owner was trying to run it/wire it for internal regulated alternator. But the old alt was not internally regulated.
Anway, I got the wire diagram from Buick and got the correct alternator, correct voltage regulator, and wired up properly as far as those two go. It fired right up. Within 60 seconds started to stutter. Pressed more on gas and it stayed running but was starting to choke. Voltage stayed within 14ish. Let off gas and died. Black spray near exhaust and a pool of gas under carb. Help.
have the same problem?
