Without knowing what you have for a regulator, I can't say this will help. I did one last spring for a friend on his old antique boat. It is a 6v system which we changed to 8v (positive ground at that).
This regulator is on a generator, not alternator, probably same as you, basically a small metal box with a relay inside. The premis of this regulator is the spring tension is just so that at about 7.5 to 8 volts, it would trip and disconnect the generator. Simply adjust the tension so it trips at a higher voltage. You will need a very accurate volt meter, preferably digital. Also remember your target isn't actually 8 volts, 10 is probably close enough. 8.8 volts is static charge, I think 9.2 is operating charge so 9.6 or so would be peak voltage under charge (a 12V battery will show 14.4 sitting and about 15 while under charge)..
This worked great for us, doesn't show signs of boiling the battery but does keep it at peak..

Thanks for the feedback!

How can you increase the voltage emf of a battery?

The electromotive force of a chemical cell is a function of the materials used in the manufacture of its electrodes. A battery consists of a number of cells connected in serie

Can you use a 7.5V Ac Adapter to charge a 6V battery?

No, it will overcharge the battery and overtime destroy it.

How is AVR regulate the generator voltage?

AVR stands for Automatic Voltage Regulator for generator. Most AVR work by automatically comparing the sensed voltage with the reference setting generator output voltage then

Can you convert a 48V golf cart using 6 8V batteries to 4 12V heavy duty deep cycle batteries?

Why would you want to do that? With the (4) 12V Deep Cycle's your run-time will be MUCH less.    Club Car golf cart's for 2009 just switched back to the (6) 8V batt sys

How do you set up a timing belt on a 1.4 8v 1994 astra?

  Answer   Turn the crankshaft until it is at the #1 TDC mark. Turn the camshaft until the dot or line is aligned with the mark on the crank pully. Each manufacturer

What does the voltage regulator do on a generator?

A voltage regulator controls the output voltage of a generator.  This ensures only the specified ÊvoltageÊis supplied thus  preventing damage to the circuit and other elec

Can your charge a 12V battery with a 6V charger?

No. A 12 v battery will actually have a charged peak voltage of 13.54v or 13.58v. A six volt charger will have around a max 7.5v voltage. The 6v charger will think the battery

What voltage is a lawn tractor battery-6v 0r 12v?

Although it really depends on the model, most are 12V.   Do You Have The Old battery how many cells does it have,most 6volts have 3cells and 12volts have 6.It all depend o

How much oil in mk2 gti 8v?

  3.5L without changing the filter. 4L if you do change the filter. Keep an eye on the level as you do it anyway.

What is better 8V or 16V engine?

Obviously 16v. The number in the name is the amount of cylinders, while the "v" is the engine configuration. So 16v is better because it has 2 times as many cylinders. Usually

Why will 6v golf cart batteries not stay charged if they are new?

  You said "stay charged if new" - Did you use the cart? If so that is kind of how the cart works - You use it and recharge it.   You said new batteries - Have they gon

How does a voltage regulator regulate the voltage output of an ac generator?

Generator output is controlled by voltage feedback to the voltage regulator which senses voltage drop or rise and regulates the current being sent to the armature. This rise a

If you double the applied voltage 2v to 4v and 4v to 8v how many times does the power increase how and by which formula?

Lets take the basic case of if you have a 2V battery with a resistor going from the positive terminal to the negative one. V = i*R and P = V*i are the two equations that you n
