Alternator is over charging how do you fix it?

It depends on the year of the vehicle. Newer (late 60s/early 70s on) had "internal regulator alternators", so the alternator needs to be replaced. Older cars have a regulator, usually mounted on a fender well, the fire wall, or the radiator support which canb be replaced independently of the alternator.

86 Lincoln mark Vii alternator not charging?

Well it could be the external regulator on the right side of the engine compartment or a bad alternator . First I would have the battery checked to verify the battery is good but only after fully charging it , then try replacing the regulator first because its cheapest and if the alternator is in fact bad it should be replaced with the alternator anyway. If the regulator doesn't help then It's probably safe to assume it would be the alternator. I've had a loose plug on the alternator also that would keep it from charging, you might wanna check that and all your connections first.Hope this helps.
