Re: What type of alternator with HEI ignition?
Most likely the OEM alternator would be enough, but the VR714 regulator is a nice upgrade. The OEM alternator was a 3-wire alternator with an external regulator. Can you tell us if the small plug on the alternator has pins like this | | or like this _ _ ?
Personally I adopted the CS-130 and used the tech reference (links from the home page of this site) to do it.
68 Coupe, 350 w/ Edelbrock Performer RPM heads, cam, intake, 700R4, Dave's small body HEI
