You need to put a voltmeter on the battery. Your car should have about
14.2 to 14.5 at the battery with the engine running without any accessories.
Fully loaded (e.g. lights and A.C. compressor), the voltage should be over
13.5 volts.

If you need an alternator and have an external regulator one (Marchal)
DO NOT upgrade to an internal regulator one. Talk to Dave or Tyson at
TRE (Saw your car there a few weeks ago.). They can help diagnose the
problem.

Good Luck
