I have a 69 and just got it running after 28 years of storage. I have rebuilt every thing except the alternator. I have had the motor running only a few times. After the motor has been running I touched the alternator and find it very hot to the touch. The motor has run may be 5-10 minutes at one time. The meter on the dash shows about half to full charge on the scale. Is it normal for the alternator to get hot?
