Delco or Ford Alternator

Let me say that as of now I have neither am am not any type of purest, would a Ford 3 wire alternator or a Delco 10SI better serve me. I believe I can do the wiring so that don't bother me, so is just a matter of preference? I am looking for maybe a 100 amp alternator or is just too much alternator? Thanks for your help-

alt type

Delco small case 100 amp fits in on just about anything, easy to wire. Looking at it from the back of alt, the regulator plug left side goes to a keyed source(ignition) and the right side can be jumped for full time power to the main battery stud on alt, this is the 12si style alt. Good luck. Happy wiring.

The Delco 12si is 94 in a 94 amp output, and there are several ways to mount it. You can get a serpentine or standard pulley, and clocking of the case plug to the mounting bracket can be set at 3, 6, or 9 o'clock positions. The clocking options give you flexibility to keep the wiring plug up where its easier to see, regardless of whether the alternator is mounted low/high, right/left, etc.

This article the parts numbers and cars for various 10si and 12si alternators. Its not 100% accurate, but very close. That way you can just go in to the parts store and say "I need a 94 amp alternator for a 1985 Camaro with a 305."
