luv: torque..engine is running fine..alternator, so it ran fine..stall

Resolved Question:

ok i put the weber carb on and we think we got it dialed in , it seems to be running ok, i got a little more torque and all , last week the gen light came on , i took it to the shop they turned up the idle cause the engine is running fine, maybe the idle wasnt fast enough for the alternator, so it ran fine for a week till today when i was slowly backing up a long distence about 200 feet, slowly in gear the gen light came on but yaknow it seemed to be yellow its usualy red, the luv didnt stall or anything i just put it in gear and drove off the light slowly faded out, when i think about it the other times it has came on i was going slow in gear an i think the light was yellow, ya yellow from the gen light,
maybe its a fuse or the wrong fuse, we checked the alternater and the voltage reg they seemed fine the reg is only 3 months old, it seems like an elec problem, even when i go inreverse at night for years ive noticed a faint glow behing the gen light but that goes away when i go into first gear. so basicly the gen light seems to be coming on when im going slow and in gear but its yellow not red, i dont think the luv has a yellow light under the gages, weird too weird
