    Adjust the torsion bar such that the door hangs open ~6-8".

    Plug the vacuum tap on the back of the left rail/horn to eliminate all vacuum leaks (except the manifold/o-rings).

    I was going to ask if the noise went away when you disconnect the field wire, but I gather it does from the link above.

    With the field wire disconnected, does turning the key off send it to good...

    NP!

    Technically #2 has negative nip. But since the specs round at three decimal places, 0.0005" => 0.001, and a hair under is rounded to 0.000". I'd consider it flush and not worry about it...

    If you put a diode in one direction, when you turn the key on, current will not flow through the bulb or get to the regulator as it should. If you put it in the other direction, when the key is off,...

    Try the field wire first then the main. If still no luck, pull the fuses one at a time (there nay be more than one...)

    Agreed, but my point was that a wrong bulb doesn't fit the issue.

    DaraSue,
    I'd try disconnecting the alternator and see it it stops.
    Pull the alternator and get it load tested, as suggested. If it shows a short, you've probably found the problem.
