Multimeter is broken. 6 cylinder, voltage meter in gauge cluster is reading 10.5. Last new alternator had a bad regulator, I had them test this one before I left and it was good. I'm guessing there's a relay or fuseable link in this
Can't tell without a meter and, it only has the one big red wire, no other plugs or wires.
This alternator has a built in voltage regulator.
The outlet for a large plug is in the alternator but there is not plug from the truck for it, I'll go double check. If there was it hasn't ever been plugged in since I've owned this truck.
Well, it's not quite stock. 383 Stroker, built by a mechanical engineer on Robby Gordon's Nascar team. Has Accell GenVII on board ECM with Fuel injection. Used stock S10 alternator for past nine years with just the power wire and worked fine until Alternator went out.
it would have been nice to know this right off the bat that this was not stock and modified and you told me 6 cylinder when it has a V8
is the alternator you replaced the same part number of the original one ? if so then we have to know if the big stud shows 12 volts at it next
It has been replaced with identical alternator. I'll have to go buy new meter.
Will do but again, I have to get a meter, it will be later on. Any chance we re-connect?
