Glowing Alternator light

1979 911sc after evaluation of non-charging issue, replaced original  external voltage regulator & Marchal alternator  with new Bosch external regulated unit, car holds a charge great ,charging 13 volts at idle. Problem with alternator light, when you start the car it goes on, after a few minutes at idle goes out, but when you rev the car light gets brighter as the revs go up. Any ideas? Thank you TonyG

Electrical Issue 1983SC

I just purchased a 1983SC and have the following problem.  While traveling if I turn on the lights the speedometer drops by approximatley 15 mph.  Any thoughts as to what might be going on?

Car will not crank

82 911SC.  Was having an intermittant starting problem, but now will not start at all. Turn the key, and all guages light up, seat belt buzzer buzzes, and all accessories work. Used to be able to turn the key several times, then it would crank & start. New High Torque starter installed approx 2 yrs ago. Just replaced the electrical portion of the ignition switch, and still nothing. Tried turning the ignition switch with a screwdriver, to rule out the mechanical part of the ignition switch. Still did not crank.

high beam switch

Model: 911 SC, Year:1982, Mileage:37,000, Type of use:Street use only
After I use the turn signal the high beams come on and the problem has gotten progressively worse so that I now have to jiggle the lever and it is difficult to get the high beams off. Is the turn signal and the high beam switch combined?

H4 Headlight Bulb exploded

Model: 911 SC, Year:1982, Mileage:37K, Type of use:Street use only
I upgraded to the H4 100/80W Headlights 30 years ago and the bulb just exploded. It is very cloudy inside of the headlamp unit. Can it be cleaned? What is the best way to clean the inside of the headlamp unit or do I need to replace the entire unit or worse yet both sides so they match.

Alternator charging Light

Model: 911, Year:1974, Mileage:110K +, Type of use:Street use only
Had my alt rebuilt and after removing the radio suppressors and grounding the double brown wires to the engine case things worked for a while. Went for a test drive after start/stopping the engine 5-6 times with all operations normal. Alt is Producing approx 14v at idle. when I turn key off the red alt light comes on & stays on. What should I look at?

Distributor cap/spark plugs

Model: 9112.7, Year:1974, Mileage:110 k, Type of use:Street use only
I know the firing order of the engine, but am unsure of where the new plugs would connect to the distributor cap. Runs rough so I may have crossed 2 wires.

oil temperature gauge short?

Model: 911S, Year:1977, Mileage:150000, Type of use:Street use only
