OK. I just changed the whole alternator, as it what what was available even though it was 400$. A VR wasnt avail and was special order.... thats the way my luck goes... but hey, I dont have the most patience for things either... ha.

Got it in tonight and all of my troubles disappeared... runs perfect, re-adjusted my idle mixture and off we went. No smoke, no hesitation, runs better than it has in 6months.

So, I guess the more dense air made it run better when really cold out... or at least maybe the regulator didnt act up as bad until it got some temp on it... hard to say, but am very thankful for all the insight here and am glad to be up and running!!

thanks again.


anyone need an alternator core? Probably be fine with the change of the VM....

it wll just sit in my garage until next spring otherwise... pm me if you want it...
