did you say you redid the wiring for it? have you got the wire from the alt going direct to the starter or battery and a decent sized cable?
From post on alt to positive batt terminal, yes it's there, I could tell you what guage, from memory, it's heavier than original, but in saying that, I didn't check what the condition of the wire or crimps are like.
Something I'll check when I get home tomorrow.

now that you have your idiot light hooked up, start the car again, take off the -neg terminal and check that it still runs, if so give the throttle a tweak or two check it still runs, then start turning things on one at a time like heater fan, headlights, radio etc.

it may be a case of your alt just not being up to the task.

It runs with neg off, but with everything on I haven't checked.
There's no difference in how the light glows when I drive it with everything off or with everything on.

But I'll wait till I get home, re run that wire, then check it with everything on.

Lights on, heater up full ball, radio on, dome light on, and things start to go dull, haven't tried wipers, cos as soon as I flick the switch for the boot release, she's off, so I think I may be in need of a better alt sooner rather than later.
