Computer for stock alternator

Post by 47dodgetruck » Mon Jan 11, 2010 3:49 pm

I am putting a 6.1 hemi in my 47 Dodge pickup. I will be changing to carburetors and am using an MSD controller to run the engine. Is there a computer out there to utilize the stock alternator to charge the system? OR any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

You can use the stock Mopar two pin electronic voltage regulator. That's what I did on the 5.7 in my Cuda. Just wire the two small wires from the alternator to the voltage regulator and splice in a 12 volt wire to one of them from the ignition circuit and you're good to go! :)
