An alternator can indeed put out its max output when the battery is low and the engine is first fired off. Full output does not mean that there is a short somewhere.

Also, full output would not fry the alternator, as they are self-current limiting. An alternator rated at 60 amps will put out approximately 60 amps and no more if the situation calls for it.

To argue with you would be pointless as your answer is also but hey have your own opinion. I know what I have said is right but oh well just been doing this for decades and 30 amp gauges have worked well for decades

If you know what you said is "right", then you need to think long and hard about what you say here on this board. 3 out of 4 statements you made about alternators are flat out WRONG!

Leading people down the wrong path is never the right thing to do.

Go ahead and prove me wrong if I said something incorrect.

BTW, I never said a 30 amp gauge would not work for him.

Yes, it does matter. When you respond to a post, there are people looking for accurate information. You and JMOR have been misleading and/or factually incorrect, and that's being charitable.

Why don't you debate like an adult? Little kids argue to prove who is right. Adults argue to get the correct answer, which is really what is important here. Are you afraid to debate?

JMOR and I debated. I finally conceded that he was technically correct in order to satisfy a wordsmith, but that his description of valve action was very misleading for a novice. That was my ONLY point.

Now, we are supposed to accept everything you say as GOSPEL?
