Alternator Identification

I have a newer 3-wire alternator on my 350. Anyway I wanted to order a Chrome 1-wire setup. Is there any way to tell the Amperage of my current alternator so I can get the same rating??

Thanks
Chris

Re: Alternator Identification

Unless it was glass-beaded off before chroming, the number should be stamped on the rear housing. Look for "XXA" stamp.

Re: Alternator Identification

Chris, Usually the amp rating is stamped in the casing somewhere on the alternator. If it's a three wire alternator, then chances are that it is rated around 63 amps for a regular non-loaded car.
