  6. YEP! Bad "new" voltage regulator! Thanks one and all! Ted in Ohio :thankyouyellow:
  7. Thank you...I'll give that a try. Will let you know what happens when I put the new, digital VR on.
  8. Thanks. VR is the D2ZF Stamped Motorcraft out of CJPP. Alternator is from Advanced Auto Parts. Had some time to put on it yesterday and found that battery voltage is the same with car on or off. 11.9VDC. :( Possible alternator cable...or...as you say-VR or alaternator
  9. Don't claim to be an auto mechanic but I'll tackle anything and am capable. Stumped on this one though. Started with a battery drain of two amps. Unplugged ALL fuses...one at a time. Still 2A drain. Unplugged voltage regular and drain stopped. Replaced voltage regulator which fell apart when removed) and drain was fixed...but now alternator light was on when started. Since everything else in this car electrically was a mess when I purchased it, I went ahead and replaced the alternator. LIGHT STILL ON! What's left? Starter solenoid and battery were also replaced while I was at it just to get new components under the hood. I'm measuring 11.9vdc at alternator and battery. New battery...voltage regulator...starter solenoid and alternator. ALt light on when car started. 351C 4bbl. HELP guys (& gals)!
