Exclamation cs 130

I want to do a alternator up-grade to my 1967 camaro to a cs130 alternator. I tried to swap a 10si on to my car but the problem I am having with this swap is the warning light stays on even when the key is turned off. Do you think i might have a one wire alternator instead of the three wire i thought i was getting? Also could a one wire alt cause this problem? I am a wiring retard when it comes to these things. Back to my original question the brackets needed to do the cs130 swap did those come from a certain year and type of car? I called the dealership to get a price on the part numbers listed in the alt tech article and they wanted nearly $100 for the two brackets. Does anyone know of where i might be able to get these brackets cheaper $100 sound pretty steep? Any help on getting my camaro convertable RS back on the road again would be much appeciated. Also if anybody that has done this before could email me some pics of their pride and joy's wiring im sure that might help me out some too.thanks

Re: cs 130

I would even be willing to go aftermarket brackets if they could be bought affordably for this setup.

Re: cs 130

I haven't read the tech article, so I'm not sure what brackets you're referring to. I bought a CS130 with a V-belt pulley from Motor City ( http://www.motorcityreman.com/high-amp-alternators.html ) for less than $100, and used my stock 69 brackets.

Re: cs 130

I am sorry i should have stated that i have the short water pump with the alternater on the drivers side. I already have a brand new cs130 and that is the reason why i am wanting to change to the cs130.

Re: cs 130

Do you have aftermarket or later model heads? The reason I ask is that the 68 short water pump heads do not have any accessory mounting holes in the front which requires a bracket that bolts up to the #1 exhuast port.

I'll look for my bracket part numbers and post back this evening.

Re: cs 130

What am I missing here? I am not seeing why original 67 alternator brackets don't work with CS130.

Good point Steve. That is essentially where I got my setup. I have the same 9:00 conversion he describes. He also explains that a 180* or 12:00 alternator will work also. The lower bracket is the one I have and it was about $40. The bracket is actually cast aluminum...a very nice piece. Carl painted or power coated his black.

The upper bracket is the mystery piece. I have the part number around here somewhere, but it eludes me tonight. As Carl did, I had to cut and reweld it, but it looks natural (except for the lack of paint on the weld).

Well, I just spent about 30 minutes looking for the part numbers on those brackets and it seems they aren't in either of the two places they should be. It must be in a big box of receipts...I'll have to dig deeper.

Re: cs 130

I have the original exhaust manifold type lower bracket on my car. maybe i will try to see if i can use a spacer to shim the alt. out a little on the lower bracket but i am not sure what im going to do on the upper bracket because of the clock position on the alternator. I will check back in later to see what you guys can come up with. I know us chevy guys are crafty and can usually make things work but i just want to make it look as nice as possible because this is a numbers matching 1967 RS convertable with 88000 original miles on it but i am looking to up-grade a few things like the stereo and a/c which will have alot more draw on the electrical system. Again Thanks guy for helping me out

Re: cs 130

Okay, I looked closer at what the issue is, and it looks like the CS130 you guys are using doesn't have the mounting holes straight across (180 degrees) like the OE externally regulated alternator. The CS130 I got from the above linked vendor has the lugs 180 degrees, so it bolted right in. Looks like the CS130 comes in different configurations, just like the 10SI, 12SI, etc. You just have to get the correct unit.
