part # # ALT-1      $27.95

series alternators

All New &
up-dated version

The kit has been a very useful and popular package for many years.  

  • Factory GM connector plug-in

  • 8 ft. of our Red, 8ga. Tuff-Wire

  • 8 ft. of wire for the connector

  • a 12ga. Fusible Link wire kit

  • wire terminals & shrinkable tubing

  • DIODE (to prevent engine run-on) Used with wiring for a voltmeter (and no warning light).  The DIODE is also required for running with MSD and many other special ignition systems.

  • The MANUAL makes the job simple!  Sections for converting from externally regulated alternator.  Sections for custom “stand alone” installation with warning light or voltmeter.  Section for installation on FORD.  It will properly wires these alternators on any car or truck!

We don’t sell alternators, but it was a pleasure to make a kit to properly wire these alternators.  They are absolutely the best and most available models of “factory” alternators in the industry.  It’s no wonder that they became the most popular for up-grades!

for 63amp (10SI) models, ask for an alternator for a ’78 Camaro (with air cond.)
94amp (12SI) models, ask for an alternator for an ’84 Camaro, 305G engine, 94amp Alt

The two- wire connector in the photo at left is at a 12SI model, 94 amp alternator.  At the alternator, the terminals are two, male, standard “flat blade” terminals.  If you are working with an alternator, which has this type of connector, it is an “SI” series alternator. 
The “SI” series alternators with this type of connector are industry favorites–and for many applications they are still the best!

These are GM DELCO alternators with built-in voltage regulators, but not “ONE-WIRE” alternators–there is a difference.  (“ONE-WIRE” alternators were built for farm tractors and industrial applications with minimal accessories and short-in-length wire harness–the “one-wire” model is basically used for a battery charger.)

The “standard” model (as GM installed on cars and trucks, three-wire) is the best for “street cars,” and it works equally well with Racing and Industrial applications too.

(1)     It is not expensive, and replacements are found where auto parts are sold.  (Practical, never miss a race or a car show, while waiting for a replacement to be shipped.  And never get stuck away from home where there is no “one wire” replacement to be found.)

(2)     The voltage regulator can read voltage “down-stream” from the alternator, at the
common power distribution in the wire harness.  This feature is critically important to good electrical system performance–The “standard” three-wire can do it, but the “one-wire” cannot do it.

(Put a 100amp, “one-wire” alternator on a typical car like a ’70 Chevelle or Camaro with original wiring, and the lights will be more dim and the ignition weaker than with the original, lazy, externally regulated alternator.)

(3)  The “standard” model (three wire) can operate a warning light at the dash.  (“one-wire” cannot.)  Operating the factory warning light at the dash is a nice touch–and a volt gauge can still be added.  The warning lights are attention getting.  If the light comes ON, watch the temp gauge–there may be a belt problem which has also stopped running the water pump.
