Alternator Options was created by zukebob
Although I don't plan on doing this too soon, and it's mostly been on the back burner, I have been digging on potential options for an alternator upgrade. I thought I would share what I have so far with the forum in case it is helpful to anyone. It explains with a little more detail the comments I have made on several posts about upgrades. Be kind though. It's a work in progress and still missing a bit of data.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

Thanks for the link. You did a thorough write-up so I won't add it to mine.

Do you know what the terminals are for the Vauxhall alternator?

I don't have any data on the opel alternator. Hopefully vdl will reply. If not, you might try sending him a PM.

Wish you had done this thread about a year or so ago before I got the Astra alternator would have been far easier to use a gv one lol

two positive terminals and one sense/starter terminal - jimny plug does not fit - used only one wire from jimny plug for sense. don't rememeber which one. you should look in wiring diagram which wire is used for sense.

The sense voltage / field excitation current should normally connect to the black/white lead (IG) on the Jimny plug. I will let vdl confirm.
