Default charging

I have a 1994 f150 straight six. Just replaced the battery and starter. Before I did this my volt gauge always registered about in the middle, leaning toward 18. Now it is way low. Did I miss a wire somewhere? Oh, and I replaced the solenoid too. I am pretty sure I have all of the wires back where they belong. I did buy a remanufactured starter. Could it be defective? Does the one small wire going to the starter have anything to do with the charging system? Thank you!!

Have you had the alternator checked? That aside,...my $$$ is on a wire terminated in the wrong spot on the solenoid.

You should have 14 to 14.5 volts DC with the truck running. If not maybe you have a problem with the rectifier.
