            I wanted an Alternator that had proper amp's and reliable. I believe the "Tough One" is just that. I chose "Advance Auto" because I have purchased and received many Auto part's from them, both by delivery and picked up in Store without a hassle and with courtesy from employee's.

                  • Q:

                    Can this alternator (78 Amp) be used as a single wire alternator as the CARQUEST/ToughOne 63 Amp (Part Number 7127-3A) can? The application would be for a 1985 Chevy K10 Pick-Up with a 350 V8. I am running 2 Electric Fans for cooling, and would like the additional output from the 78 amp alternator. Am I on the right track with my thinking?

                  • Q:

                    Is this a positive or negative ground alternator?

                      A:

                      Thus, any positive-ground car must be converted to negative-ground before an alternator can be installed. Unless positive-ground equipment has been added, the change is trivial. A quick internet search will provide lots of information on positive-to-negative ground conversions. A final, very minor, consideration applies to early Bugeyes that have the ignition coil mounted on the generator. The coil obviously will have to be relocated.
