Alternator for 69

I have a 69 Camaro, factory a/c car, 350 small block. I am putting in a new front wiring harness. I have a question I hope you can help me with.

I'm converting to an alternator/regulator in one. I bought the wiring jumper for the regulator and two wire conversion for the factory harness. Can anyone recommend a good alternator (model number/manufacturer) that I should use? Keep in mind that this is a factory a/c car, that doesn't have anything under the hood, but will later this spring with a Vintage air system.

Re: Alternator for 69

I went with a Powermaster Alternator for my 1969. It's 140 Amps. I like it!!

Now if I can only find how to get rid of that hot wire that runs to it. And I do mean hot wire. This thing nearly melted a hole in the passenger side valve cover when I accidentally touched the wire to the valve cover. Then while working on the car I accidentally touched a screw driver to the battery tip on this alternator which sticks out of the back near the valve cover. Sparks flew again. There are two wires that run to my alternator. One is this insane hot wire which appears to have been put on by the prior owner and the other looks like a wire coming in under the positive side of the battery. These two go on the battery prong (the only tip on the back). I did find the harness and I cut the three prong harness out and stuck a 2 prong tip which goes to teh side of the alternator. I wish I knew how to wire this thing correctly and get rid of the voltage regualtor since just about all the Powermaster alternators are internally regulated.
