Amp it up

I’ve been having charging problems for a few months now. After taking a long drive at night checking out the new solex setup, the car refused to start and left me stranded in a grocery store parking lot. Not fun.

I decided to go with a 60-amp GM 10si as many others have. They are cheap and plentiful - I think you can actually buy them at 7-11!

It made sense to move the alt to the “cool side” of the engine (the passenger side for SRL’s) at the same time.

GM alt on the left, stock 35-amp alt on the right.
