Well, today I received a new alternator that I am interested in testing to see if additional gains can be made:
|Nice and Clean!|
|Note the square wires, and how close the are.|
It is a 220A, 138.5 (larger frame) Desno Hairpin alternator. Configured for installation on Cummins 5.9L diesels as an option on some Dodge light trucks.
I am unable to locate RPM/output curves for this unit, though data from one of the people using my Alternator Regulator shows they have a very fast cut-in. And I need to think about the drive belt - to keep it at the 1:1 ratio, increase it, change it to a rubbed belt.. Some more thinking to do. But I am looking forward to a winter project and see how this baby works out!
