Some 1 wire alternators are bastardized 3 wire ones that do not work as they should. Me I do my own wiring and use the common Delco 10si like what would come on a 1980 Chev pick up no power any thing no AC. Easy to wire up and if you have an O'Reilly's close by you can buy them for around $45 plus a core of $10.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeMight verify the ammeter/alt/load wiring. Some of those kits show strange (non-std) ammeter connections.

Many 1 wire set ups need 2000 plus RPM to excite and the N series engine has a problem doing that often so that is why i never say to use a 1 wire. BTDT and never again will I use the one wires
