Re: Atomic 4 Alternator replacement

You want an alternator that's ignition protected. Otherwise: Gas fumes + spark = KA-BOOM!. Standard automotive alternators are probably not ignition protected, as gas fume build-up in an automobile engine compartment is unlikely and, even if things do catch fire, you can just get out of the car.
