Re: Atomic 4 Alternator replacement
We just determined the (original) alternator on our (vintage 1967) Cal 30 is shot. Spoke to MMI, who recommended their 55 amp alternator but said mounting arrangement for it differs from the old one and that mounting the new one might be "involved". Went to alternator shop and was told Delco #8903 (61 amp) would be a good replacement for the old one, with a similar mounting arrangement (which makes it attractive); however, it has only one wire (no field wire, as with the old one) and the change in wiring makes me nervous because of that (I am not an expert). Does anyone have experience with: a) mounting the new MMI alternator to an old engine, or b) using the Delco to replace an old alternator?
