    The diode board has 6 major diodes to rectify the 3-phase output from the alternator. If one or two diodes fail you'll get a voltage drop after the diode board which the regulator cannot compensate...

    The upper and lower U-joint are off by a good number of degrees due to the shaft twisted inside the rubber damper.

    I am glad you got a replacement part quickly.

    Did you mean "2.25 mA" - "A" as in "amperes"? If that's so it would draw (2.25 mA * 1,000 hours) = 2.25 Ah in 41 days or roughly it would drain your battery in a year if not used at all.

    I have...

    arm yourself with a 10 Amp fused ampmeter and follow Wayne's suggestions above.
