HO alt installed, voltage not high enough
Sup guys, so saturday I finally got around to installing my new ALT from alterstart. Installation went perfect, then I decide to check my voltage with a DMM with the car running. At idle i'm at around 12.2-12.9. When I rev it (mind you I can rev to 9000+ rpms) the highest my voltage will go according to the DMM is 14.1...what gives?
The spec sheet that I received with the alt shows the voltage regulator was set at 14.447. So why does it not show such on the DMM.
RECAP. Installed alt, having same problems as before (lets say the amp was tested at 14.4) with HO alt regulator set at 14.447 when reved does not go over 14.1. It doesn't even feel as if I have a HO alt.
Please help, thanks in advance
