I just registered the car and was finalizing the maintenance on the car before going for a cruise. I noticed the amp gauge and decided to check the charging voltage 17.8!!!!, not good. Removed the regulator last night and found one set of contacts fused together. I separated the contacts and cleaned and dressed them. Then I noticed a small wire from the contact had burned and opened up, and fixed that as well.

I have another regulator JIC, but plan to install repaired original, which should resolve the over charging issue. I did check the coils and resistors as well and all ok. Should be good to go for another 51 years.
