My voltmeter attached "permanently" to each of my
Rovers (one, now) showed 14.5 volts charging when
running with no equipment on.

Is the belt tension such that it only depresses 1/2
between the waterpump pulley and the generator pulley?

If you want to escape from Pitt Meadows for a while,
come over and we can potter.  I have a new regulator
that we could try but I don't know the condition of my
spare generators.
