Default Generator output

Hi: I just joined the forum, it's got a lot of information on Model A's.I just bought a 1931 roadster and it keeps blowing the stop light bulbs. I looked in Les Andrews book and he says to control the output of the generator the third brush can be adjusted.Can this be done with the generator in place or should I remove it? I have 7.04 volts at the light socket with the engine not running. With the engine running at idle I have 11.75 volts and the ampmeter is around 16 to 18 amps. Can this damage my battery, coil, and points?
