I had the alternator tested after I bought it and the said it was fine. The power wire looks fine. The fusable link is good. the only thing that isn't working is the gauge. I went to a different parts store and they told me that it might be the voltage regulator and it would be on the fire wall or the driver side fender
any suggestions on why the voltage gauge isn't working or how to go about finding the problem, and thanks for your help

TEST VOLTAGE COMING OUT OF ALT WITH AN AMP METER, IF ITS GOOD THERE TRACE IT BACK TO THE GAUGE. THATS THE LONG WAY BUT I DON'T THINK YOU HAVE A GAUGE TESTER.THE CIRCUIT BOARD ON INST. CLUSTER MAY BE BAD AT AMP GAUGE
