My 69 only puts out about 11.5 at idle. If you run the lights, they get dim and the car dies and needs to be jumped. The post conections are clean and tight. the belt seems o.k. Would it be the alt. or the regulator?

Dave, the easiest (cheapest) thing to do would be change the regulator but you could always run the alternator down to a local parts store and have it checked.
