Re: Electrical - I did a bad bad thing (alternator / regulator)
"If you started with the main switch in the off position, there's your problem.
Your alternator had no where to send its generated current. its probably just a fuse that has blown. "
OK, someone will jump in here and explain how a fuse can blow when the circuit is open. Unless this is some sort of cascade failure mode. No load (switch is off) output voltage of alternator rises pass the point that the regulator is rated for so output regulating device fails due to over voltage condition?
