So my battery voltage had been goin about 3/4 high sometimes.. I got a nee battery a few months ago because my old one died.. So i'm guessing that now i need a new alternator? Right?

Put a meter on it and see what the actual voltage is, first. Should be around 14 volts.

One lead to ground and the other to?
While it's running, you can touch the leads to the battery cables. If it's a normal voltage and the gauge reads high, then it's probably gauge related. If it's charging too high, then it's probably the alt.

Normal range is usally just midway. Since you're charging checks out, you should be good.
