yes thats what was happening. Now according to my dad he said it wont even crank now. But i dont know if he was charging it enough or not.

But when I was dealing with it, it would actually crank and run but die will still running.

Have you checked the solenoid? it could be corroded (internal) to the point that it is acting as a shunt and sending all voltage to ground.

did you change the battery or just keep charging it. The battery could have a bad cell so it will take a charge but go dead while sitting even if disconnected. Also do some checking as noted the alt may be good but may have a separate regulator which I believe some still did in 1985.
