83 245 battery light on, w/ tach,gas,temp,turn signals, small volt guage off 200

The car runs great except for it just had the battery light come on bright. This was after I parked it for 15 minutes with no issues prior. The tachometer barely works a little but not as it should and only when slowing down. The temp and gas gauge are dead. The speedometer is fine. My little (turbo style) volt meter is dead. All wires on the back of the alternator appear to be fine. My turn signals are not working unless its just the dash and sound that are dead. Headlights work fine.

Alternator is giving 12.something volts which is below the 13.8 I believe it should. I'm going to switch out the alternator with a spare I have. I know the brushes are not that old unless one broke or something.

My warning lights the past few months only showed the oil light when turning the ignition. Any chance this is related or should I be looking at the ignition switch as well?
