Update #3 (FINAL!)
Well, picked up the alternator today. Ron said someone previously had decided to paint various parts of the alt. Parts they shouldn't have. Interior surfaces that should be bare to make a good ground were painted.
He cleaned it, tested it and all is good.
I just reinstalled it, cranked up the engine, and all looks great! Gauges steady and volts where they should be. The regulator is regulating correctly.
So...now just a matter of finishing the cleaning & waxing and getting in the water. Hope by end of next week.
Thanks to all who replied! Much appreciated.
It's not whether you're paranoid...it's whether you're paranoid enough.
