haven wierd stuff with my charging system, lookin for ideas.. good strong batteries, 120amp dual pully alt external regulator NO balast resitor,lol...so my vlots at idle sit around 15.8 to 16.. rev it up with load ..16-17 now when my lights are on there bright and wokin, but they strobe with the idle.. and brighten a bit when its reving, now just seems like its overcharging tryed 4 differtn volt regs .. no change. should i look at changin or testing the alter?

Make sure the alt is properly grounded. Also check the voltage at the regulator.

Is your voltmeter ok ?

Are you running an ammeter?

The BFH is always a great tool.
