    I had a similar issue on my '78 last year. The alternator was rebuilt with no change to gen light symptom.
    It was the cable from the alternator to the starter. The lug on the starter was corroded and only a few strands of wire were clinging on. After I replaced the lug. stripped back the cable to clean wire, all my electrical issues disappeared. I noticed an improvement in my window speeds and wiper motion. It seems everything was basically running on battery power. Since I always plug in a battery tender, the battery remained strong on startups, so I was basically "band-aiding" the problem.
