I recently had to replace both the generator and regulator on my 1955 Chevy.The brushes on the generator had worn out and the regulator with the replacement generator only allowed it to charge about 10 amps but at about 13 volts. When I replaced the regulator I now get about 30 amps for a few minutes then down to about 2 amps however after about 2000 RPM the volts are at 15. I am concerned that this will shorten the life of lights and points. I would appreciate any comments. Is this a problem? If so how can I correct without a new regulator or switching to an alternator? Thanks in advance.
