Alright I have a 83 Cutlass with the 307, and of a sudden it quit charging the battery. I noticed the CHARGE LIGHT come on, then it died. So i charged the batt right back up, put a load test and it was bad. I bought a new one and put it on, and it killed the batt again. I replaced the Alt, and that little clip cause it was all messed up. As soon as I turn the key on the charge light comes on, and of course it kills the batt again. I changed the wire's around and tried it again, this time the charge light dont come on, but it still kills the batt. So i bought a new batt and another alt, and still the same thing I put a volt meter on the the alt, and both times its only putting out about 12.5 V, then it starts falling and eventually dies! Everything is on nice and tight. And it still wont charge! has anybody had this problem?
