An alternator/regulator/drive belt are in your future. I vote drive belt tension first.
I do have 13.5v+ at the battery while running, but only 11.4v coming into the distributor.

I did also notice that the alternator has the little clipped in plug that goes into the side of the alternator, it looks like it should have 2 wires attached to the clip but I only have one wire on mine.
