I assume that his stock regulator wasn't working properly. My stock reg puts out around 13.8V at idle and my alternator puts out around 14.5 V AC at idle. As soon as I touch the throttle the voltage rises to 14.5V DC.We must know that later version have higher AC voltage at idle due to rpm reduction on models with alternator under the clutch ( I think that primary ratio is 1.74, so at 1000 engine rpm the alternator spins with only around 570rpm, if my math is right...).

AnotherMike have higher AC readings than me, but lower DC readings than me.
So there must be a problem with regulator or there is a bad conection somewhere in electrical circut.

There is nothing else, that came to my mind why he has so low charging.
