on some of my other cars and trucks ive had to upgrade my altenator... without paying a high price for a aftermarket alt.. i always tried and find an alt off an police car..or ambulance.. they come from the factory with the higher output alts.. figured id let you in on that secret my dad showed me.. thats what i did on an old caprice,crown vic i had... and got an alt on my f250 from an ambulance.....
Ive also read alot on the big 3.... and this is the correct way to do it as hes telling you... alot of people dont do the ground wires.. they just do the altenator wires..gotta do the grounds too....... you cannot have to many grounds
Would you suppose this would work on ANY truck or car? I'm liking the lack of voltage drop and am considering doing this on my 94' F150. Heck, maybe even my 09' Escape, if it's worth it....
Oh, yeah, are you just adding wire? You don't remove the old, factory grounds and alternator wires, do you?
Page looks good gimme some details about your mechanical fan delete. What did you add? Does it use a thermostat AND kick on with the A/C compressor? Do you need a shroud? How much did that affect your MPG's?
Okay guys here are the updated pics. I've messaged Jon to add a message from me into the first post so that anyone that opens the thread sees it first and can easily find this post. Let me know if you have any questions. Hope this helps some of you out. The pictures should be self-explanatory when it comes to cable locations, but let me know if you have any questions. I'll repeat what I said in the original post: this isn't a set-in-stone way....it's the way I did it.
