3G Alternator Install

3G Alternator Install

Here is what I have. A 130amp alternator complete with stator wire, short bolt, and with no exchange required. Mine came with the standard finish for $145.00 with shipping included. I received it in about four days. The other parts you will need can be bought at a local car stereo shop. They are:

A) waffer fuse holder rated at 150amps
B) 150 amp waffer fuse
C) 10 feet of 4ga wire
D) (2) ring terminals for 4ga wire
E) (1) scotch lock (not shown)

INSTALLATION:

  1. Disconnect the battery.
  2. Remove serpentine belt.
  3. Remove the (2) bolts that mount the old alternator to the bracket (Top is 9/16", Bottom is 5/8").
  4. Using a flat blade screw driver, remove the (2) electrical connections from the old alternator & remove the alternator from the car.
  5. Insert the new 3G alternator in the bracket and thread in the bottom bolt only.
  6. Check for interference with the bracket and grind bracket as needed
  7. Bolt the 3G alternator up and check to verify serpentine belt is still the right length.
  8. Mount the fuse holder.
  9. Run 4ga wire from the stud on the back of the 3G alternator to the fuse holder.
  10. Run 4ga wire from the other side of the fuse holder to positive side of solenoid.
  11. Splice the new stator wire with a scotch lock to the small wire on the big electrical plug.
  12. Plug in the small electrical connector into the 3G alternator.
  13. Reconnect the battery.
  14. Start it up and YOU ARE DONE !!!!!!
