I thought maybe my belt was loose, but it seems like its too consistant to be a loose belt, always happens. Even if I run the engine for a while and let it get to 14volts, if I shut off the car and restart it it happens again.
Maybe a bad battery?

I think they do alt's too, and I'm going to check into it very soon.
Here's their web site - I can HIGHLY reccomend them for disty rebuilds:

The EA81 Digidashes actually have an alarm on them when the voltage goes squirrley, but you need to shut down fast before its toasted. Everyone also needs to be looking at the Chevy/GM Alt's(from an earlier post) for a higher amp replacement too.

But this Alt has never been removed with the battery connected (cause the battery is also my comunity battery as well).

Before u buy another subie alt, definitely consider the chevy conversion.
I just got my hi-amp (105amps) kit in from Jc Whitney and I plan on doing it this week.
It includes all the replaceable parts for the alt, so, conceivably, u could get a free toasted chevy alt at the yard and for $34 (thats what the kit costs) you do the rebuild yourself and get higher amps.
I plan on taking pics as I install the hi-amp kit as well as my rig for installing the alt in my hatch including the part number for the longer belt.
If you want higher amps, for cheap, u may want to consider the chevy.
Hopefully by the end of the week, I will have my write up ready.

This alt worked great on the brat, and ive been using it as my "community alternator"
If you got passed around like that you would be a little worn out too!
