Since you have a 383 then I presume originality isn't an issue. That would be the only reason not to go to an internally regulated alternator IMHO. For one thing, they put out a hellova lot more current than the old externally regulated alternators. For another, the voltage stability is much better which can prevent ignition component failures and other issues related to voltage spikes. I installed a CS130 style using the techreference on this website as a guide.
