I drove those cars 1/3 million miles, and the generator was a reoccurring problem.
Biggest thing was brushes failing every 40,000 miles. I got a bracket from a 63
and installed an internally regulated alternator from the 70s, bolt in. I got rid of
that clumsy voltage mechanical voltage regulator and a bunch of under hood wiring.
The GEN light still works, rewired directly to the alternator. Saves some weight.
