The story goes that the generator "Generates" electricity. Thusly you can safely remove the cables from the battery. The "Alternator" produces alternating voltage with the diode trio to donvert it to DC voltage. When you disconnect the battery, the alternator goes into "Full field" mode. It tends to generate maximum voltage and amperage due to no reference voltage. This means you can get 27 volts and about 200 amps out of an alternator gone wild. Yes, there us a very good chance you can disconnect the alt and it will continue to run. I did it on my "82 car quite a few years ago. It only cost me $207 for a new ignition module. I watched jiffy jube do it to a custom,ers car a few weeks ago. It survived the ordeal. At what cost? How many little computer boards got the zap of the shortened life? You can do as you desire. Me? I got my $207 education before I found out what happened.
