I keep blowing tail lights and blinker lights. Some one told me it was my rectifier.
How can I make sure before I spend $ on one.... Also which brand should I buy?
Thanks.

Check all chassis and circuit grounds, the regulator also relies on a very good ground to chassis. The battery acts as a capacitor for the charging system. If you remove the ground with the engine running it will cause large fluctuations in output voltage causing the engine to run erratically and blow the lights out. Had a ground cable break on 89 EG, flames out the pipes !!!!

Good Luck!
