Question

Are the CS series alternators better than the 130 watt SI series? If so why? What has to be done to convert from my 100 amp SI to a 130 CS or should I just up grade to a 130 SI?
Thanks,
Mike

Of the things I've noted on the CS130 I just bought today - The CS-130 is smaller that the SI. Both the rear and the front bearings are sealed rollers. The SI alternators that I have worked on have a roller bearing in the front and a bushing in the rear. The CS-130 has an extra fan internally attached to the rotor in the rear section to provide more cooling air flow over the regulator. So it should provide more power in a smaller container, run cooler and last a long long time.
