78 280z alternator replacement
Hi guys, a few questions for you
My alternator died (the AAA guy tested it when the car was towed). I am seeing a lot of hooplah around the word "internally regulated" with some folks saying that the 78 280z can use the 1983 280zx alternator right out of the box (no need for a 1978-80 one) but some folks say i have to fiddle with wiring because the 78 is "externally regulated."
Basically im finding a lot of conflicting information for strictly the 1978 280z
any information would be appreciated!
PS whenever the car was running (since i got in in july) the charge light on the voltmeter was on dimly, does that mean the alternator was perpetually dying?
