How big? Are you running a GM style serpentine? If so, I have a source on adapter brackets to allow you to bolt on a 140A or bigger CS130 alt. on a stock GM bracket. PM me if you want or post here.

Re: 10dn to cs130

A really nice CS style alternator that is the only one I could find that had the same clocking and was a direct bolt in was from a 1988 Olds Firenza with a 2.0 FI. Just swap out the serp. pulley for your v-belt one and grab the newer style CS alt plug. Its rated at 108A.

Its a great alt to run if you want to retain a stock appearance and/or want to keep the v belt configuration.

Re: 10dn to cs130

Paul,

What year/vehicle?

A CS130 requires a little more than just a diagram. If you are going to take advantage of it's output, you'll need to upgrade your wiring (unless for some reason you're not adding any major electrical loads, just wanting to use a CS130 with a serpentine set-up?)

There's a lot of information/mis-information on the net. I did some checking and even spoke to my old boss in regards to the set-up.

There are are 2 different styles of CS130's. They look the same, but the connector terminals are different. The difference is the internal voltage regulator set-up.

The lettering on the plug signifies the type of internal regulator arrangement.

P L F S and S I L P


Typically the PLFS is for later cars that utilize modern computers--i.e. use a BCM (body contol module). The SILP was for the "simpler" designs

The SILP would be the easier route, but will require some wiring mods. Ideally the I "igntion" line would go to "un-resistor'd" 12 volts that is only hot when the key is on/engine running. The L can then be connected to a dummy lamp.

Are you intending to use a dummy lamp? You can't keep your factory ammeter if you have upraded the factory wiring to allow for the higher current loads on the main battery + feeds.

The simplest would be to now connect your factory brown wire that went to the original external voltage regulator to the "I" terminal. Use a voltmeter inside the vehicle as your reference instead of a dummy light or ammeter.

You may connect your "S" terminal to the rear of the alternator at the big battery connection, run it to a remote sensing spot (like a distribution block) for better voltage control, or leave it disconnected and the alternator's voltage regulator will sense the internal voltage by default.

The PLFS units are tricky as you can easily damage the internal regulator. They are meant for the modern electronics in cars. The "L" terminal for example needs to see a far greater resistance in series than anything the the factory could provide in the Chevelle design.

Re: 10dn to cs130

I have 66 chevy and I do have a plfs plug and I know that it's best to have the s wire connected remotely and I also think The blue wire on my 10dn blog to the l wire on my cs130 plug and on my voltage reg plug splice the blue and brown wires

Paul,

I'll draw something up for you.
