I went to a wrecker and they asked $100 for a sh one... No thanks hah, i charge my battery before every trip and only drive when its urgent. The alternator puts out 11 volts so im going to rebrush itWell i guess considering you will soon break down because the battery will become too low, that would be bad. Why not just put a 50 buck SH alt on and be done with it?
Yes, sounds like the reg is stuffed and needs replacing if the alternator still spins over ok. Only takes a few minutes to replace and does not need the alternator to be removed to swap the regulator/brush assembly.Try just replacing the voltage regulator. Should only cost around $25 or so, and easy to replace.
