JEGS Mini 1-wire GM Alternators offer additional clearance and weight savings over full size alternators with the same charging output. Features an internal regulator. Easily installed by connecting 1-wire from the alternator to the positive side of the battery. Requires use of appropriate low mount-alternator bracket (sold separately). Note: Low mount units will not clear stock front crossmember, steering and swaybar due to below crank centerline positioning. Check for potential clearance issues before ordering.
A one wire alternator has a turn on point (sometimes called "cut in", which is typically about 1200 engine RPM). We have developed rotor poles and stator stacks that carry a higher magnetism thus providing an instant regulator cut in without engine acceleration. All of our 1-wire alternators are manufactured with this exclusive low cut in feature at 880 engine RPM which is much lower than any other alternator (of its type) sold. This is the speed where the internal sense circuitry connects the battery to the voltage regulator, thereby turning the alternator on. Once the voltage regulator turns on, the alternator will remain on and charging until the engine comes to a complete stop.
