Username Post: Voltage Regulator Problem

Today I replaced the aftermarket Chinese solid state voltage regulator on my 1966 Corvair, with a new OEM Delco Remy unit.  The new regulator is allowing the alternator to overcharge.  I am reading 17.2 volts when the engine is running.  Also, the alternator light stays on all the time.  The light gets brighter as the engine RPMs increase.

The regulator is isolated from the body with rubber grommets, as it should be.  I experimented with grounding the regulator case and, it caused the alternator to growl.

Any advice on my regulator issue is much appreciated.
