    I'm working on an '86 blazer, it once had two alternators. I want to run only one, what do I do with the wires from the drivers side??? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif Also, how do you get rid of the blackout lighting and retain the normal lights?

    You give it to me and you get yourself a regular civilian blazer. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    No really it's little more involved than just removing an alternator.
    Do you still run 24volt starter?
    If you do you can't eliminate one alternator, they work in series.
    If you want to convert to 12 volt, there is a thread that had all the details and step by step, try a search on this forum.
    If you can't find it maybe someone had it in the favorites and can point a link here.
    I can do it myself but to give you directions it will take too long and it's been done so professionnaly on that thread I won't even try to compare.
