What one wire alternator can I put in my CJ??

I think it is my wiring that is messed up on the alternator. I can't figure it out. I want just to by-pass it all and get a one wire alternator. What would fit the 360 brackets and work in a CJ? THanks for your help.

Hey, try this it worked for me. Go to your local auto electric rebuilder and ask them if they can make your alt. a 1 wire unit. I did it on a dodge 6cyl and a GM unit. It will save you the trouble of trying to find another alt that may or may not work.

good luck.........

Do you want some assistance in rewiring your alternator? It's not too hard to do. There are essentially 3 wires. One heavy gauge to the battery or battery terminal of the starter solenoid. One wire from terminal A through a diode, 100 ohm resistor or idiot light to a source of key on power (ignition). Third wire goes from terminal B to the battery lug on the alternator, or if you wish to do as TeamRush suggested, run it from B to the key on power. That's the heavy red/white strip wire coming out of the harness plug on the firewall. This will regulate voltage at the harness instead of at the battery.
