Boxing 97 spider charging and smoke???

Hi there, here's the trouble. Checked charging on my spider and it was 12.5 volts, jacked her up and checked the back of the alty, 14 volt. Checked the battery again 14 volts. Speedo stopped in the first place but is now ok. I also have a burning smell from the rear of the engine bay, no its not oil . Can't get my head round why one minute she's happy as hell then the next dropping on volts . Looked at the wiring and all seems okay no melting ie anything, the smoke, which is sporadic seems to be coming from centre/Nd of the vehicle in the engine bay. Back if the alty looks in tact ue no melting???? Any help would be great even stating the obvious. But I am sure that I am not the first . The guy I got it off said relay 13 was causing a drain??? But something ain't right .... Started great for the first few days and now has gone flat, just as I was taking it fur are spray lol.
