Red face GM CS130D alternator

Trying to install GM CS130D Alternator on my T-Bucket. Does anyone know how to wire this in? Presently have a one wire 12 SI 100A unit and need more output. This unit has 4 pins at the regulator, they are marked S F L P. Thanks

If it has 2 prongs top and a screw below that, the ALT EXCITOR wire (white) goes to the left prong ... the right prong gets a jump-wire to the screw and the screw gets wired to the ALT POWER wire(red).

GM "CS" alternators

HORVATH, the answer you give is for the GM "SI" alternator which is a 2 wire hook up. The alternator I have is the NEW CS130D. Thanks any way. Which has a 4 wire plug, marked PLFS or PlIS.

Spindlevw,

THANKS for the link it was just what I needed. I am putting a 1988 vet engine in a 1946 truck. I found a serpentine set-up at a wrecking yard from a 1996 I think rear wheel drive chevy sedan. It has the newer alternator and I needed to know which wires to connect to make it charge. I think I burnt the regulator up from touching 12v to every terminal. So I think if I replace the regulator and connect all the wires correctly I will be charging up that battery.

Thanks
Scholman

MAD Electrical has a good article when it comes to 1-wire versus 3-wire alternators

Here's another related thread. 140 amp 10SI

The CS 130D has a charge wire and a four conductor plug, but functionally you wire it like a SI series three wire. Two of the wires in the large plug on the CS 130 are not connected, so it ends up with only 3 wires.

You might also find this link useful. http://www.madelectrical.com/catalog/cs-130.shtml

All you REALLY need for a 130d and a cs 130 is the battery wire from the post going directly to the battery. Then run a wire off the ignition, thru an idiot light to the "L". Using the "I" wire too, is redundant. Don't use anything parallel to the coil if you have one.
