Hi Mike,

Have you checked the contacts in the regulator for proper gaps and corrosion? Are all the wiring connections clean and tight? Are the wires themselves in good shape? I've seen quite a few harnessesthat looked good, but had corrosion under the insulation. Have you looked inside the generator itself to see if any "crud" or brush "dust" is coating the fields? How do the brushes look? These are a few of the basics, but sometimes an accumulation of little things can cost a system a few volts!
