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..

How easy is it to fit a ecu on a 1.2 8v punto?

if it is a MK1, the ECU is very easy to change a 10 min job; to ensure the engine still starts you must change the code box and ignition barrel to match the key/code. if it

Where is the knock sensor on my mk2 8v gti?

Your knock sensor is on the front of the engine block just to the left of the radiator hose. Be careful not to tighten the sensor too tight when installing one. They crack eas

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

How many oxygen sensors on astra 1.6 8v 2002?

There are two oxygen sensors one on the front of the engine in the front pipe before the catalyst (lambda sensor) and a second sensor in the front pipe near the front flexible

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

How much energy is given to each coulomb of charge passing through 6V battery?

Voltage = 6 V Charge = 1 C Current * Time = Charge V * t = Q Energy = Current * Voltage * Time E = VIt E = Q * V E = 1 C * 6 V E = 6 Joules Therefore energ

1.6 8v astra head bolt torque?

  Answer   Astra F   stage 1. 25Nm   stage 2. + 60 degrees   Stage 3. + 60 degrees   Stage 4. + 60 degrees.

Voltage for a fully charged car battery?

Normally in off load, its about 12.6 volts. 12.6 is correct for a fully charged battery. 12.4 it is 75% 12.2 it is 50% 12.0 it is 25%

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
