1971 472 problems 7 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 0  
hey.

I recently bought a 71 coue deville and im trying to work out the problems with it.

1. Charging problem. the generator light surges constantly and causes all the lights inside and out side of the car to surge. i tried adjusting the voltage regulator but to my surprise the regulator on the car is not adjustible (and my GM sevice manual only acknowledges that the car should have an adjustible regulator). It also appears that the car has a typical GM 2 wire alternator rather then a &quot;generator&quot;.

2. The car had a small engine fire. The anti-dieseling solenoid is fried and some of the wiring around it. there are also 2 vacuum lines that enter the engine bay low on the firewall on the drivers side that are just dangling and have no clue as to where to connect them.

3. There is a diaphram of some sort perched beside the coil where a harness and vacuum line where once connected.

any help with these issues would be greatly appreciated.
frustrated,

definately... as for the voltage regulator and alternator i think theyre the wrong parts, the guy who had it before didnt seem to care much about keeping it running right, he just wanted to look cool.

Consider replacing the alternator with a later internally regulated unit. Very easy swap.

Only use the new internal regulator. The original can be removed or left in place for decoration.
