Re: 1 Wire - 3 Wire Alternator Question
what type of alternator do you have right now? Do you have an external regulator or internal? If you have an external regulator then you will have to convert your car to an internal type before you can use this alternator. If you have an internal regulator then your should really consider using that alternator as a standard regulator, not a 1 wire type. The 1 wire alternators require the car to reach 1000 or 1200rpm before the alternator will start to charge. With the standard type regulator the alternator will start to charge as soon as the engine starts running.
