      My alternator has stopped charging and I have to chop up my connector to make it charge again.

      Where can i find a replacement?


      THanks!!

      I'll look in my stash but I seriously would dump that style of alternator and use a larger gauge cable. I'll keep you posted if I should find it.

      Thanks so much!! Glad to find this connector.

      Yes I do need to convert to a different alternator.

      I just scored a serpentine belt set up with alternator and a/c compressor off of a late Cabrio. Wish I found it before I converted away from my York Compressor with standard V belts. Oh well... live and learn.

      I saw the harness on InnovateWiring. com....

      It looks like high quality.

      I did not order it because it's clocked wrong. It will still work and plug into the alternator but the wires will come UP out of the alternator and not facing down.

      Thanks!!

      I ordered this as connector and made my own wiring harness. I'm can now pump out 65Amps and with the new connector my voltage went up from 12.84 at idle to 13.5.
