Jewosh Posted February 11, 2011 Report Share Posted February 11, 2011 So I have my 1968 510 Wagon, and quite a lot of electrical drawing devices in it. Upgraded headlights, big stereo, and a few other things, and when I have my lights on, indicator on, stereo playing, and foot on the brake pedal (brake lights on), the voltage gets so low that the car either stalls, or has a horrible idle forcing me to keep my foot on the gas to keep it charging. While driving this usually isn't a problem, as my gauge shows around 14-16 volts depending on RPM. My question is, what should I replace it with? Especially if I plan on running more things off the engine. I'm pretty sure right now it has a stock 35 Amp unit, though I am not 100% sure due to its strange engine (L20b bottom end with L16 head). I would like a bolt on sort of deal if possible or one that already has a conversion kit. I don't have the tools or ability to make myself a bracket I trust. Thanks! Quote Link to comment
