Here's my cross reference to compare ==> http://www.dbelectrical.com/p-3609-n...e-adr0334.aspx

Click on the small picture in the flea-bay ad and enlarge it to see the comparison specifications.

Whereas, I replaced the OEM alternator on a 93 190 (351 Ford / Indmar) which fits the bracket and the install application with the wiring. You have one hot wire, the exciter is built in, and the mounting bracket to the engine block is your ground. Just cap of the currently existing exciter wire and tuck it away.

Here's another place to look for confirmation of cross reference numbers. == http://bpi.ebasicpower.com/c/ALLCHARGEa/
What is your OEM alternator?

Your 96 is a Chevrolet engine best I recall, so there may be a slight difference in mounting but I don't think there is a significant delta between the 93 Ford and the 96 Chevy mounting, unless I am not seeing the mounting assembly correctly for your 96. Here's the install on the 93 that is currently in my garage.

Thanks "Clocked" for the info.

As you mentioned the alternator lives on the other side on the Chevy setup.
So I am going to take a chance an buy the one I have found on eBay .

Looks correct Kevin, I was considering that alternator - the prestolite part cross reference is correct. I went with the NAPA Auto because I could pick it up locally.

Awesome job bringing her back to life.

Throttle cable

Hello all

thanks

Engine check light

Hello all

As the tittle says I am now looking as to why the dash engine check light does operate ,I have traced it down the the wire in the engine loom (Brown/black tracer) which has just been taped up in the the loom and not connected .
Looking at a wiring diagram it looks like the wire from the data plug (brown /white tracer) is the output from the ecu to control the check light .

I think that by connecting the wire from the dash bulb in the engine harness with the wire from the data plug should operate it

Has anyone any info on this circuit .


thanks

Kevin

Hello All


Fitted in the new throttle cable , but I was not happy with the feel and operation of the lever so I have pulled it completely bits to find 3 broken springs all causing different issues .

1. Spring at the lower part of the lever handle broken , with this broken it allows the lever to go in and out of gear without using the safety pull up lever .

2.Horizontal spring inside small gearbox broken ,this pushes on a detente ball which gives the feel when you have selected forward or reverse ,I could not feel the point when a gear had been selected.

3. Spring on outer throttle cable slider broken , this was allowing the throttle cable to pull before a gear had been fully engaged.

This may help if you have these sort of issues .

I bet that feels a whole lot better when you get it all back together. I pulled the throttle apart last year on my '77 and found 35 years of old grease and sand. Just a simple cleaning made a huge difference. Throttle lever clicks crisply in and out of gear now.
