I believe I have the charging issue solved; bad alternator. This is disappointing, as the alternator is brand new. I have a square back mopar alternator with mopar electronic voltage regulator setup in this car. With the ignition switch turned to "Run", I have 12 volts at the regulator "I" terminal and at one of the field terminals on the alternator (this is the blue wire). There is no voltage "through" the alternator to the other field terminal (where the green wire connects the alternator to the voltage regulator). This indicates a bad alternator field winding.

My next goals are to fine tune the accelerator linkage (i don't think I can actually get the carb to WOT when the pedal is to the floor) and bleed my hydraulic throughout bearing. I had to pump the clutch pedal at stops to get the clutch to release properly. I also need to adjust my clutch pedal linkage so I don't over-actuate the release bearing and blow it out.

New alternator solved the charging issue, back up to about 14 to 14.5 volts when the engine is running. Working on putting in a new brake master cylinder next. Larger bore for firmer pedal and to feed the volume to 4 wheel disc brakes. Also lighter (aluminum) with easy open plastic reservoir screw caps.
