Hi all,
After some troubleshooting I found my alternator was bad. When I removed it from what I'll call the housing I noticed a few drops of oil in this housing and what appeared to be 2 small pieces of metal. Examiming the alternator (without taking it apart). It looks maybe oily in there. I just put a rebuilt unit in and it was charging at idle 12.9.
I am planning on putting in a compufire very soon.

Any thoughts or recommendations?

Thanks,
Larry

The small amount of oil found is normal. The metal pieces are unusual. They may have come from the old alternator but it could be worth taking the new alternator out again after you've done some miles to see if you get anymore metal in there.
