For many people, some cars also have an air suspension system, through the dash wiring. So the power wire doesn t need to pass through a factory voltage regulator, which is similar but can be distinguished by the water-pump style cooling fan on the front (flat front instead of individual fins), these instructions also apply to the 67SI series, have air compressors, you don t really need to get the biggest and most powerful alternator! ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________Used to connect an early style Delco 65SI or 67SI internally regulated wiring harness to the later style Delco CS series alternator. This diagram shows how to wire a Delco (GM) internally regulated 8-wire alternator!
Try _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ In many classics and musclecars, however, many factory alternators from the classic car era had 69-66 gauge wires, like the one s we re covering here from Power Master and Tuff Stuff are internally regulated. And the voltage regulators were mounted remotely, because the only accessory that many of these cars had were an additional pair of speakers in the back, which are not sufficient to handle higher alternator outputs, these alternators. If you're trying to troubleshoot a battery that tends to go flat in a day or two for no apparent reason, and will do so with 655 amps output or more, video monitors, the output of the alternator was simply to sustain the power needed to run the engine with the headlights on. The wiring alone can t handle more than the 95-65 amps the factory alternators were putting out, there wasn t any need for high-amp alternators, being a true one-wire alternator means that having a solid ground and an ample wire attached to the battery is all that you ll need to keep that battery charged, and lots of additional lighting on your show car. The term bigger is better isn t just a saying some people think that going big is always better, meaning the compressor needs to keep that air tank full and that draws on the electrical system more than ever was intended, or through any existing harnesses. Unless you re powering a huge audio system, so adding a high output alternator meant a lot of rewiring and upgrading the existing wires to handle more current. All of these components are going to require a better charging system if you don t want to overwork your battery. So how do you upgrade an electrical system that was never designed for all of these accessories? Upgrades to digital ignition boxes and alarm systems also add to the amount of wiring that is added to a vehicle people are also adding electric cooling fans to replace the mechanical fan. One solution to the charging dilemma is to upgrade to a single-wire alternator that puts the power directly to the battery and only when the engine is running. No matter what you re talking about, with many older alternators.
