Re: One wire alternator

Nope they are the new style. If they sit too long they loose charge and you need to excite them. This thing would not work at any rpm. I jumped it to the battery and in couple of seconds it was charging. I didnt use the boat last year one stayed working. The other wouldn't charge.

Re: Can't get past 2000rpm

I also had an issue like that for my application there were two different rotors.
The rotor that was installed was hitting the cap. the correct rotor solved that issue.
