i am kindof at a stumbling point though. the regulator does not seem to be putting out the voltage. i am fairly sure that when i took apart the starter switch everything went back properly(not too much to mess up in there) after a good cleaning of the contacts. i replaced the battery tonight and fired it up, the dash lights all shut off so i figured all was okay, but wanted to make sure. so i hooked up a battery tester to the battery and found it was holding steady at about 13 volts, which should be enough to keep the battery charged if i dont use the electric clutch. the really odd thing to me was that when i shut the key off the voltage jumped to 14.5(roughly) volts for a second then dropped back to 13 volts.
i printed off a scematic so i can do a couple quick tests to verify all is working properly, but i wanted to know if this is something you guys might consider normal.
