    I have what is believed to be a 3 wire GM alternator with the internal regulator. I bought it at a swap so now I need to confirm. It has the typical one large lead on the back of the alternator for the power and then a Field 1 and 2 next to each other on the perimeter of the housing. I tried to take some numbers off of it, so here's my best shot at it. The numbers are in two rows, the top row is 1 102913 61 ? and the bottom row is SK 1--12v NED.

    I'd like to confirm that its a 3 wire and the amount of amps it will generate.

    Thank you for your assistance.

    are the terminal pins in a straight line, or parallel to each other?

    straight: -- --

    parallel: | |

    if it's straight it's internal, if they're paralle it's external regulator

    This guy put some serious time into putting this article together an it is simple to follow. http://www.expeditionlandrover.info/Delco_Alternators.html
    Be aware that he is converting a Land Rover to a Delco alternator but it is a great source of Delco alternator info as far as the alternators we would most likely be interested in running.
