Got it fixed: Regulator (Transistor version) had the gen/alt light circuit
damaged, got replaced and it's fine, and a few minutes after my mishap engine
power problems started and got worse, this got cured by a new coil (there
was a very old one installed anyway). Luckily the alternator was spared,
probably because engine was idling only.

Thanks again for the hints,
