I recently installed a prestolite 8mr2401ua self excite alternator, wired to the (+) Battery common post & the (-) Ground Buss via 4AWG cables as recommended. It seems to perform flawlessly in my initial tests. However, I noted that I need to rev my engine to get the unit to cut in. Although this is expected behavior for this type of installation, I would prefer to have the unit energized with the ignition circuit so if I forget to rev the motor at start up on my way out or in, the alternator will have cut in at idle cruising speed.
My question is two fold:
1) Is it possible to convert this unit to ignition excite? If so how is this accomplished?
2) Are there any dis-advantages to ignition-excite wiring method?
Thanks in advance.

I'm having a problem with this alternator charging my batteries (one wire alternator). I'm running a dual battery with an Isolators. Basically the alternator is hook to the center post and then the batteries are hook to the outside one (diode). The alternator won't charge until it has a voltage.
1) If I run another wire from the alternator to a battery won't this just bypass the isolator and charge through this wire.
2) How can I wire this to make it work

I am looking to replace a Motorola alternator 8EM2008NA. It is on a Cummins 6BTA diesel marine engine. I found two possible options that cross reference to the Motorola unit; Leece Neville 110-464 and 210-435. Both are 65 amp and 12 volts. What is the difference between these two units and which would be the closest match regarding fit and function.
