Why Maxx Power brand?
We have included the original 1-groove pulley and also a 5-groove serpentine pulley if the customer is running a serpentine belt setup.
What does One-wire mean?
This term is used to describe the type of alternator hook-up. In a one-wire application the customer only need to connect the B+ (battery charge lead) to the alternator B+ post (located on the back of the unit).
They no longer will use the 2 or 3 wire plug that was originally used on the OE factory harness.
Most enthusiasts like the one wire units because they clean up the under hood appearance and can easily be used on many vehicles.
What do I do with the un-used plug?
You can remove the plug all together or simply tape it along the harness to give a clean appearance.
Do i need to upgrade the B+ wire?
It is recommended that you run a 4-or 6-gauge B+ wire from the unit to the battery if the OE harnes is old and in poor condition.
Which wire goes to the alternator B+ terminal?
It will be the same wire that was connected to the original B+ terminal on the old alternator. This will eb the terminal with a threaded stud and nut.
Can i paint or Powder coat the unit?
Yes, you can mask the unit and apply liquid paint or disassemble and powder coat.
How does the unit mount, it looks different than my current unit?
We have designed the front aluminum casting and mount holes identical to the original GM Delcom unit so it will drop-in with no issues.
The ring terminal on my existing B+ wire does not fit the new unit threaded B+ stud?
You may have to cut and crimp a new larger ring terminal on some applications to fit the larger B+ threaded stud on the Maxx Power alternator.
My dash light does not go out?
Simply remove the wire connector at the radiator support or firewall mounted exxternal voltage regulator. This will deactivate the dash light.
