    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    here ya go, i've used 1 of these from this company and it worked really well, 105amps my ass though it did put out 72amps which is plenty for most dragboats with nitrous. i ran a 2stage plate on my gullwing , had a btm msd/3stage retard/2 electric holley black pumps/ and all the other electrical on the boat and it held it.

    Default Alternators and Starters

    I've had very few problems(2 in 13 years), with Powermasters' Alternators OR Starters. Both problems were taken care of by Powermaster in 1 day. They had the customer go to the closest WD and pick up another piece - BRAND NEW in the box. No questions, crying, or transit delays. 1 Starter was 2 YEARS old when it broke the Bendix(bad customer Flexplate), and was exchanged that day for a new one.

    That kind of service demands consideration before you purchase.

    The Jegs ones are not marine safety rated though, right? I've been looking at alternators too. The bolt hole in the case has become oval shaped and the double pulley set-up is now off centered. Why are the marine ones so expensive? Are they really less likely to ignite gas fumes? Anyone here been safety ticketed for non-marine or non-stock parts?

    All marine parts are more expensive, because all the manufactors are just greedy bastages!

    You might check around a boat salvage yard locally to see if they have a good used single wire marine alternator...never hurts...to check anyway.

    I am not sure what the difference is for the marine alternators or marine carbs, but I know that marine distributor's have a flame retarder built into the distributor housing that the automotive ones don't have. If you are using a non-marine distributor I would recommend replacing it...I'm going to do mine this weekend.

    I haven't had any problems yet in my neck of the woods getting busted for non-marine items....but I am going to replace the most obvious to see unit for my safety. I am currently using an automotive Accel Supercoil HEI coil in cap distributor, and a non-marine Holley double pumper...and a non marine alternator too, but I haven't been driving it around crazily near other boats when I take it out either. They don't seem to be too interested in harrasing me so far. I get thumbs up alot, and asked what I have in my jet boat...402 Chevy BB with Berkeley 12JC. People just like old Jet boats with healthy sounding BB engines I guess...I know I do!

    I have a new complete Mallory Marine distributor system now, to replace my old Accel unit...this weekend it's getting swapped.
