I have been having quite a problem trying to figure out why my charging system in my 1982 toyota pickup is not working correctly.
I've already had a problem with my battery slowly discharging and having it die on me twice. After running my truck in idle and even revving it a bit when i test it with a meter the battery is at most gotten to 11.97 volts and will slowly drain over time. Thus not getting to the 13.8-14.8 criteria
I have replaced my external regulator today and still no help dissappointingly. I also replaced my alternator probably a good 3 months ago and quite hesitant in pulling that stupid thing off till its the last resort and i try all my other solutions. All my fuses are good, and i know my battery is fine since i have taken it out and checked it with a meter over time to see if it was bad or not.
Im just about to make sure all my connections are solid and not corroded and figure i would hopefully get some advice from a more experienced person then myself (first yota i've owned). I can some pictures of any certain area if you feel it will help.
BTW i have the 22r engine if that matters at all. Thanks again for your time and looking forward to any possible help
