    Default BBC Alternator

    Running a BBC and I am swapping out the 3 wire alternator to a 1 wire setup.
    What size and brand alt would you suggest?
    The engine is not covered....

    TIA

    it depends on if you have a booming stereo, 10 guages, or a 1000hp motor.

    if you have none of the above, a stock bbc alt. will work just fine. if you have a cd player, a few speakers, 5 guages and a mild motor, pick up a 80-100 amp alt and it will work fine.

    This will do the job. I recommend putting the smaller Moroso Crankshaft pully on so you don't have to turn the alternator so fast all the time. It's not necessary in a boat.
