Hopefully all is well

Just got in from driving around the block a few times and all seems well. Discovered that the spark I was getting was very weak (not enough to trigger the timing light). So I put in an old coil and she fired right up.

Took out the new'ish VR and put the old VR back in and voltage at the terminals is still fluctuating between14.7 to 15 volts. It used to hold steady at 13.6 volts. I am hearing a strange whine towards the front of the engine (alt. bearings?). Could the alternator be on its way out? How would I know? Could a voltage surge have fried a relay and the coil?

Any ideas?

Thanks,

DP
