This kit is made specifically for the installation of a Ford 3G alternator on any vehicle where the stock alternator was EXTERNALLY regulated. We incorporate a new replacement external regulator box (as shown) to capture the proper circuit and retain the stock wiring harness along with our own 3-wire (3G Series) regulator plug. This kit allows the customer to retain the OEM warning lights and shunt type ammeter ** Installation requires the customer replace the stock external regulator with the box provided, install the alternator and our 3-wire plug, then make one crimp connection from the original Field wire at the alternator.
** direct reading ammeter should not be used or should be bridged due to the significant increase in measured amperage with upgrade alternators

Nice kit,fit was fine, though I chose to shorten the wires on my installation. I could see where someone would struggle with the instructions if they are inexperienced. Overall, I'd recommend this kit for converting your charging system

I just finished it today went from 12.7 output to 14.46. I pulled the alt. bracket off to cut, polished it up, bead blasted it and painted with header clear coat and baked it. Had wires running everywhere to make sure everything worked. Got all wiring neaten up. Put about 35 miles on it, done a couple of burnouts and ran it through the gears. Not a problem. Would recommend the upgrade to anyone running under drive pulleys and electric cooling fans.
