TimP82Two years ago, I replaced the OEM alternator/regulator with a single wire GM self exiting alternator, that puts out 60 amps, for only $60. I have been running this alternator for a couple of years now and haven't looked back! It took a lot of research at the time to find out what to upgrade to but this was the simplest one and I wanted to upgrade it and eliminate the need for an external regulator. I just had to get a different length belt also. That was easy enough to find at my local Tractor Supply for I think $6. Go to dbelectrical.com and search this: Alternator 1 Wire Universal Self-Excited 10SI 10 SI 7127-SE. I tried posting the link but I do not have permission because I have not met the required 3 posts in order to do so.
What is the amperage rating of the new alternator? You may have to change out some wires anyway.Dear Bob,
I want to replace the alternator on my Jinma 254 with the Delco 10si single wire internal regulator. What do I so with the other 3 wires? Thank you for any help
I believe your existing alternator is rated nominally at 14 amps, and your output wire is only AWG 14 equivalent, which will need to be replaced with AWG 10 (as well as the ground wire). You will also need to get the smallest pulley you can for your belt width. So, about those extra wires - just tape them all off because you won't be using any of them.Bob, according to the web site the amperage for the Delco 10si is 63 amps
