This is easy - replace your regulator. You probably have one or more shorted diodes (or transistors) in the regulator and/or the bridge rectifier between the alternator and the battery.
Diodes 'convert' AC made by an alternator into "DC" used by the battery. It does this by clipping off one-half of the power cycle. You can check a diode for proper operation using a flash light battery, a flash light lamp and a short piece of wire. A normal diode will let current pass in only one direction - the light will light when wired one way and not light when reversed. If it lights in both directions, the diode is bad. I dont know how to test a transistor. The repair in either case is replacement of the part. You cannot change a diode or a transistor in either component. If the part is obsolete, you may have to have a part built by an electronics technician.
Good luck with your repair and thanks for your interest in FixYa.com
