I have a biz trip that will keep me out from under the hood until Saturday. Hopefully my beautiful wife will let me spend an hour or two working on it then. I will keep you posted on what happens. I hate it when I follow a thread and you're left hanging.
Finally a break in the weather. I got a Porsche dash bulb and hooked it in between the exciter wire and a switched 12 V source. The car charges nicely now. I think it also needs a diode, cathode towards the alternator, in series with the lightbulb. This would cause the light to go off when the battery starts charging. For now, I have a light under the hood that is always on when the car is on. ;-)
