You have an original multi-wire alt? They make a single wire newer one, that's probably what you need.

12 volts is not charging. I don't think one wires work any different. You should be at 14 volts or more. Anybody know otherwise?

That's the part I don't know about one wires. Maybe they don't charge well at idle. It could be normal. Somebody with experience?

some alternators dont put out much current at idle, usually the older ones dont.
