Lord Vader, thanks for gettting back. Nasty habit of not being clearer.
I had the battery hooked up a freinds volt meter to the battery and when the car started up it was charging. After about 5 minutes the readout went from 13.75 or so and then dropped to 10.5. The belt was loose and I tightened it. I have not tested it again. it has been running ok since Saturday. I hope I am not inviting trouble. I am going to get a meter and check it. I will get back. Thanks
