hey Kevin,

Now I am completely confused as I dig more... hopefully someone will chime in.

I am 100% sure the one you bought is wrong... there are two that I found from that time period for the LT1 which is used on the regular TBI. They are the AC5 and the AC125 depending on the VIN number of the car.

http://bakesonline.com/detail.aspx?ID=2026 - however, the picture indicates a pin in the housing that the AC5 and AC125 do not have. http://www.skidim.com/prodinfo.asp?number=R084002 indicates the pin in the housing as well.

are there any other markings on your original part? - I really want to find this part.

The AC5 from standard products is for the non dual overhead cam of that the corvette ZR-1 came with.

ISC again

Good evening Mike,

Thanks for finding this ,

So looking at the Standard brand web site and the 2 part numbers you have quoted
(217-429 & 17113099) they both cross over to a AC27 or AC27T .
So on good old eBay item number 330982610530 looks good ,

What do you think ?.

Kevin

I would go with the AC27 the T is a cheaper version per

http://www.standardbrand.com/online%...g/content.aspx

Standard T-Series is a competitively priced line containing some of the most popular part numbers to help you meet your market needs. The Standard T-Series is a fit whenever a commercially acceptable product is called for.

Easy question

I have found and bought a used alternator , which I have been told was an original fitment from the same boat as mine .

I just want to confirm the hook up for the 2x wires ,

In the attached image ,
the top right (poss output) is the main 12v output .
bottom left (exc ) is the exciter wire , just a 12v feed for the alternator to look at.

Thanks

Kevin

Looks like my old one.. easy on the battery post - that is connected to a plastic chassis for the rectifier...that break very easily due to age - don't ask how I know

Maintiance tip

Hi All

Just to share with all a way I have found to check the Tbi injectors are switching or to
de-pressurize the the fuel system.

Use a tv remote battery and to power the injector , as simple as that .
