Default Delco 1 wire alternator

Just spoke to FSI regarding Electronic Ignition. (we are installing on a AA)


They recommend the Delco single wire 12V.



Anyone know where to find the right one with bracket to fit the AA



Thanks

Don't know for sure because I don't have one, but isn't the alternator that the vendors sell a Delco one wire? Or a close facsimile? Sure looks like one.

Ruth,

They look to me like 10-Si models that have been converted to 6 volt Pos ground one wire.

I had a local shop convert a 12-Si some years ago.

Be sure you go to negative ground so you are in sync with the rest of the cars and modern plug in electronics. For the record, I hate the way alternators look in a Model A engine compartment.

I agree. That's why I went with the 12v PowerGen.
