has anyone swapped a higher amp alternator with a different year vehicle to get more amperage? if so what vehicle?
what is 3g
search 3G and you will get all the info you need
buy one from Fireguy50.
I forgot the 1, it should say:so a v-belt works better? or do you have your numbers wrong?
The regulator doesn't run an alt at max output all the time. If you had 5 alternators, I bet they were running far under their max. A v-Belt can turn a 200amp rated alternator if it never sees a demand over 100amps. Some people just have to have the biggest toy, even if its just for show (not directed at anyone here :beer )I really can't understand that? All belts slip, some less, some more. I have run many hi-current alts over many years and never had power loss due to slipping belts. I have run 5 -200 amp alts on my audio system years ago and never had a problem. Please explain this to me? Not being a dickhe** about it but you got my mind turning. We even tested the output on the alts using a 6 rib and we got way more than 80amps. I can't remember off hand but I know it was over 115 at idle. Wouldn't this cause the belts to wear faster? We never replace a belt during the 5 years I ran the truck
what web site is that from? Did GM or Ford put a 250amp alt on a 6rib vehicle from the factory?250 AMP Alt / 6 rib / Idle current 120
This is for a Gm but the website I found offers the same specs for a ford, v belt, 6 rib, and 8 rib for diesel. the only thing I can find out about the 8 rib is that most diesel come with 8 ribs. I do understand that 2 more ribs will reduce slippage and 2 less will increase slippage but that would be shown by belts being worn faster wouldn't it?
Kinda figured-whole nother reason why a good hydro winch setup is the bomb.
