Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
Sorry for not speaking in the video. Received a battery/alternator error yesterday, the engine died, restarted and now won't respond to accelerator. If it was clear enough in the video, while idling the engine is revving up on its own constantly. I checked the voltage on the battery and alternator, and that seems to be ok.

After recharging the battery, load test, a bad battery dirty terminal could be a problem. With the engine running what is the Voltage at the alternator and battery. It should have 13.4 to 13.8 Volts, at both locations. R&R Alternator. This should be the voltages at the fuse pannel. The HEI ignition needs good voltage for a hot spark. Other things to check if alternator and fuse panel have good voltage, Ignition Switch, Fuse Panel, Connections at Distributor.

Most alternators put out around 14.7 volts. Yours is alittle high. You might check it with another meter to be sure. Voltage does drop when the engine is running and has a load on it. ie lights, A/C, Blower. radio. As long as it stays above 12 volts it is working. I have bought parts before that last only days, so I wouldn't worry about the first alternator. If the voltage drop continues (say to 8 volts?), Then I would check wires (loose connections). The first would be the ignition wire going to the starter. On your year the battery power went to the starter and most of the ignition power ran from there. There could be several wires from the starter hot side. ( sorry I can't be exact, I haven't worked on one for awhile). Also check the grounds, battery to engine, engine to body, battery to body.
