No seriously, he did get a crap alternator from there and had to have it swapped out for another.

The regulator is on the alternator on that model, likely a cheap rebuild good enough to pass a few seconds on the test machine.
While your working on it, pick up some 10 gauge copper strand wire that's oil and gas resistant (cheap at hardware store, apx $1 foot) and add it to battery ground and run it to the frame. Add another wire from battery ground to a bolt on the engine block while allowing room for the engine to move while avoiding exhaust, fans and pulleys.
If you're planning to add to you electrical system (sterio, amps, light, and ect) add bigger wire than 10 gauge depending on the load.I would strongly recommend leaving the existing wires in place.
