    I'm looking to upgrade to a higher amp alt.,140 amps or more.Anbody have a high amp 1 wire alternater,and if so what did you do with the other wires.At present I have a stock 10SI model alt. with the internal regulator,rated at 100 amps.I just put in dual 14" electric fans and I don't think the charging system has enough oomph.Along with the TPI fuel injection and 55WT. driving lights.I think I definitly need to upgrade.Thanks.

    I put on a 1 wire alt. It is very cool. I removed all wires which went to the alt and removed the voltage regulator. Mine is also a high amp unit so I ran a new 8 gauge wire directly to the battery. I am going to add a fusible link in this wire sometime soon. If you have a schematic, you can see which wires go where. One thing I haven't finished, is the volt meter gauge connection. According to my schematic, the gauge may still work. If not, I'll figure it out.
