Anyone know what the advantages are to running a 3 wire alt vs 1 wire? Seems like the 1 wire is alot simpler and easier to install. I have a 96 MC PS 190 w/ the 350 in it. Currently have a 3 wire. Will I run into any issues by switching to a 1 wire?

nope you should not have any problems. The only difference is a self exciting regulator. When you hit 700 Rpm the alt will automatically kick on. When I replave mine I'll go to a 1 wire, that is what I have run in the past.

Thanks shawn, I thoguht that it would not be an issue. I actually just ordered the 135 amp alt. from the guy you posted about. He helped explain everything. I was trying to over-complicate it. He said he doesn't even reccomend putting a circuit breaker on it. He said on a two battery setup hook the main power lead to the postivie terminal on your starting battery. As long as you have an inline fuse protecting the amps I'll be ok w/o a circuit breaker.

Yeah I just put one on just to be anal about it. I'm glad he hooked you up. You will love the new alt. If you have anyother questions just give me a holler!!

what voltage are you seeing @ idle w/ all accesories off? He said the regualtors are set @ 14.2.

I don't understand how they can make them that cheap and not want a core back? I went to my local guy who built my 90amp, and said it would be around $200+ to rebuild one that big, and he wanted my core.

NO idea how he does it. I'm seing right at 14.1 on average. They are about bullet proof.

you won't find them anywhere cheaper...shawn said he's had no issues with either of his...I figure for a littel over a $100 its worth a shot.

Just be sure the unit is grounded properly.
