I would rather have tools I do not need than to need tools I do not have

Re: ALTERNATOR

Thanks, Nikki! 10SI alternators are great!

I would add:
The external "exciting" circuitry on their larger voltage alternators is NOT rocket science. It's just a instrument cluster bulb placed inline between ignition switch "on" and that terminal on the internal regulator. It's nice to have a warning light, amp/ volt gauge or not.

My experience with the pulleys is that you rattle off the pulley from your GRD generator and rattle it on your alternator. They fit. :)

"Leaking" regulators are for real. They WILL kill a battery quickly. Personally, since the external self-exciting circuit is so simple I'd always want to use that. No "self-exciters" for me. :)

Re: ALTERNATOR

I'm really trying to respond to the self exciting comment. I will say, it improves my hearing by 75%.
