Re: weird volt meter readings

On some alternators there is a wire that runs from the output lug to a connector an inch away on the alternator housing. This carries output voltage to the internal regulator. If the connection gets loose or corroded the regulator will see low voltage and kick up the output, causing the symptoms you describe.
