Re: Alternator question

Alright, I got the new one delivered and It looks pretty straight forward. My question is, there's three connectors on the alternator I pulled out(the bad one). A T style connector, a red/white wire (marked "E") and two dark grey wires(marked "A") that are spliced together. So, the T connector goes ...

Re: Alternator question

awesome, thanks for the info everyone! And I just checked, and turns out the new one is externally regulated, so I'm looking at a straight up swap with the stocker. (they put it in a generic box that had an IR unit on it)

Re: Alternator question

So in response to Defdes: I went ahead and ordered a 35A IR alternator, as I plan on leaving this L16 stock until I get to a full motor swap. Do I still need to replace the battery lead with 10ga wire? And do I need to also do the choke relay? If it's not really outputting any more amps than the sto...

Alternator question

I'm looking for a replacement alternator for my 72 dime running a stock L16. I've found lots of possible alternators, but was planning on picking up a Beck/Arnley 60amp. I read that after 71 the 510 switched to a 50amp alternator, so I'm assuming that's what I've got. Will a 60 amp replace a 50amp n...

Wow! Nice photos. I'm waiting for a full on set of high-res photos of this car so I can update my desktop and add it to my 510 photo collection. I'd love to see how this car looks rolling! BTW, I too have been struggling with the quest for wider wheels on a stock-bodied 510. I just can't bring mysel...

I'm running 15x7 with an offset of +15. They hit my struts (280zx) so I have to run 7mm spacers and longer lugs to accomodate.

Ok, sweet! ARP sounds like the way to go. Is there a prefered online ordering location for their parts? Also a part# would be awesome as I'm not sure what size lugs to order. The hubs are from an 81 280zx.

So is there not a longer lug that is the same diameter as the 280zx stockers? It seems like a PITA to have to drill out the hubs. Also, I haven't looked at the rears, but are those a pain to remove due to the axle being in the way? I thought I'd heard that somewhere. The wheels are Maxxim Screech's ...

running longer wheel lugs

I just realized that I'm going to need to run 7mm spacers to get my wheels to clear my 280zx struts. The problem now is the stock 280zx lugs are too short. I need lugs that are about 1/2" longer to make these wheels fit. I've seen some posts before on this subject, but I can't deduct a clear answer ...

So will a bumpsteer spacer eliminate this problem? I'm running the T3 RCA's and they're about 1.5" to 2" tall IIRC. I'll investigate further this weekend when I can get a chance to get in there and look.
