    Case 530CK

    Default Case 530 and electrical.

    Done a lot to this beast and now it is time for the electrical. It currently only has an alternator with no wires. I would like to have the alernator charge the battery and run some lights. Do I need a voltage regualtor between the alternator and battery? Can I just run lights right from the battery or should I do it from the alternator?

    Since you have an alternator I assume it is not original. You will need to check the alternator to know if and which voltage regulator to get. Better deal and near the same money is go buy a rebuilt single wire delco alternator. You connect one wire from the alternator to the battery and you are done. Should be less than $50 for a 35 amp alternator.

    Yea, I think it is actually charger. I am going to convert it to an alternator. I am liking this single wire delco alternator idea. Should only need to make a bracket unless somebody knows of one that fits.

    There are some conversion kits out there. Try Steiner tractor parts on the web.
