What alternator replaces your A001090594
We have several Fire Trucks with these and I have been told that they are no longer around
I’m in the middle of resurrecting a 1982 wood chipper. Power is a 300 ci Ford 6 cyl.
At some point in it’s prior life, both indicator lights (charge and oil pressure) were essentially destroyed leaving little clue as to the wiring. The harness between the alternator and the regulator was had been opened up and spliced (looked like fire repair). My solution is to do a rewire and replace missing parts. For the charge light I have an LED that physically fits, but I have no idea of the wiring from the ignition switch to the charge light and the regulator.
The Ford Manual indicates a 15 Ohm resistor in parallel with the lamp for a Ford Alternator but is quite silent regarding the Motorola other than a lead off of the regulator to IGN
Ford manual gives a pretty good layout for a Ford alternator \and regulator but this unit came with a Motorola external regulator, a Motorola Alternator and the manual refers you to Motorola which I guess put’s my question in your lap as the successor to their alternator business.
Regulator is Motorola Part number 8RH2002
Alternator is Motorola Part No 8AL2046N
Any help would be appreciated. Documentation on these powerunits seems pretty scarce
I have a Prestolite alternator on a Universal M3-20 diesel engine in my boat, the boat and engine is a 1990 and I believe it to be the original alternator though it has been rebuilt and painted black and I can't read the model number without taking it off and dissolving the paint. This alternator has a 1/4 stud for the battery output, a voltage sense wire, a purple wire for the excite terminal and a tach output. I believe it grounds through the case. It has a regulator on it. It looks very similar to an 8MR alternator, 2" spool mount with 6.5" between the top and bottom bolt holes.
It puts out 14 to 14.2 volts all the time regardless of what my batteries need and I want to be able to turn it off when they don't need charge to avoid overcharging them. It is charging two group 24 dual purpose and another starting battery through a Xantrex echo charger.
I hooked it up to a main battery switch with a field disconnect to protect the diodes against accidentally shutting off the batteries. I also put a switch on the purple wire going to the excite terminal figuring that breaking that circuit would shut it down, but it doesn't do anything, the alternator just keeps on making 14 to 14.2 volts.
Do these alternators self-excite once they are making power? If so, how do I shut down its output. Also, if it self excites I assume the field disconnect in my main battery switch is useless as well, is this correct?
I am trying to locate the model number for the alternator for my boat.There is no model number on the old alternator, but it is a Prestolite. The engine is a 1994 Volvo Penta 3.0 GL. Any information would be appreciated.
we are looking for cross reference for Alternator Delco Remy
part# 19011177. If we look at your brochure at BLP2303
which is shown as cross reference
we see that distance between front and rear mounting holes is 4.25 in (108mm) but Delco Remy.
has 4.97 in (126.3mm)
I looked through all your brochures and see that all your pad mounted alternators has the same distance – 4.25in. Is it real or mistaken? I personally measured this distance on Delco Alternator and see that their info (4.97in) is real.
I have a 8SC 30190 110-316 24 Volt 100 Amp alternator with the 8RL 3022 A 105-352 regulator. Problem is that only 50 Amps will go to the batteries instead of 100 Amps. Engine is Volvo TAMD 41 HD 145 HP. Dou you have any suggestions ?
When will the 4000 series alternator be available for high temperature operation?
we will be using a 320 Amp alternator with 4 bolt pad mount
We are using the alternator on a C-15 Cat engine.
Please suggest me what will be do to prevent fusing of bulb. after 10 days alternator fitment geting trouble to fuse of bulb suggest me. Is there any adujester for volt control.
Thanking you your sincerly
I have a 1985/86 GMC Carpenter School Bus converted into a traveling lounge (not quite an RV) and I'm going to add a couple of deep cycle batteries so we can have an RV fridge and our laptops, etc.
In order to do that, I need to know what AMPS our alternator is. Here's what it says on the outside:
14v 3-step Leece-Neville
Does this mean it has 108 Amps?
Do you have a brushless alternator ( 120 to 160 amp.) with no internal regulator, and if it can be fitted with a 3 steps Balmar regulator.
I would like to have the parts no. and the specs.
