I took some advise and ran the engine for a while and some at higher RMP than Idle.
Now...even at idle I am getting 13.33 V!
I think it will get better with time to.
Here is what the old VR looked like...
note the difference in size of the contacts..
Any thoughs ...please feel free!
(I'll be driving with the Volt meter for a while till I feel better) LOL
