Hello. Maybe someone can help me out here... I rebuilt my engine and it fires up and runs and everything but my battery light is on. I tested the alternator and its putting put 16.xx volts. I thought it was the alternator so I bought a new one and installed it same issue same voltage. The battery is getting a charge so I'm not sure what it could be. The fuse link is in good shape as well. I even out 100 miles on the car with the battery light on and runs very well. No dimming of lights nothing like that. Just really odd... what could it be I'm at a loss her please help

It's quite likely you have a bad battery. The alternator can run up to 16v to charge the battery if it detects it's low on charge state. I would take your battery to the parts store and have it tested. If it tests ok, it could be a bad replacement alternator or possibly a wiring issue but those are less likely. I'd take care of it as soon as you can because 16v is going to damage the battery.
