voltage cut outs

I have gone through 3 voltage cut outs (TSC 0236465) every time I run the car I get max amps only when I run with the headlight on it drops to around 10 amps and when i turn the key off i get a 10 amp draw. I pull the wire off the cut out and the draw goes away.Do you think i should adjust the third brush and if so how do i do it? I have pulled the tops off the cut outs and the points are welded closed?

Hi Don.....

Click on the tech page and then the AEA tune up specs.

There is info on the 3rd brush adjustment as well as other useful data.
