Is there any reason one cannot use a marine 10si or 12si type alternator on an automobile application. I know the reverse is not recommended, but I cannot find anything addressing this question.

Marine 10/12si alt/

Use to rebuild alts, all types. the marine has spark arrestors as mentioned so no diff. But some are 1 wire alts, pos. batt trem only and don't have an ign keyed wire but field themselves with Rpm, so if used a smaller pulley may be needed to initially start alt, that way you won't have to rev it up to start charging.:thumbup:
