Default Whats the biggest ALT you can put on a 12V cummins ?

As some of you are awaire , last winter I bought a 1990 dodge tug truck that was on hear, with plans of putting the drivetrain in my ford crewcab ..


Am getting ready to put it all together soon and was going to do a monster stereo in it as well....along with winches..


So I need help finding where to buy a reasonable priced " BIG HD ALTERNATER " for the 1990 12V cummins


Any links or info would be great...

Thanks for your time

If you need real power check out this thread over on dieseltruckresource. Jim Lane over there put a big truck, Leece Neville 110-555HD 140 amp version in his 93.

Thanks for the advice and link


I am running 4 Optima yellow top batteries, to keep my stereo ( 4 kicker amps and 2 PPI amps ) , KC lights, and 12,000 winch happy..

Just the stereo system alone ,turned all the way up is capible of pulling 400 amps... Not that I ever do that


So maybe now that I have described my application alittle better, that might help




Thanks for any leads guys ...as I am new to the 12V cummins

you should be able to get one as large as 240a

Contact a cummins distributor

Lots of coaches and RVs use the B series engines, most coaches use one or even two 170-250a alternators

the b series engine should have one of 2 mounting systems. the flat plate or the pivoit point. either of thoes are avaiable with higher alternators. the probelm is that is not a cummins part. so you would have to call them, to get a OEM number, then go to delco remi or who ever to convert it over to a different part number for a higher out put alt. the one on there shoulde be around a 90-120 amp right now. i have seen around 200 amp. not sure what the price would be

if you have a volvo, kenworth,or cummins dealer up there I would call and get some numbers. I use to work at Cummins Bridgeway, and I would hate to see you spend your money there sence they are over priced.

Another option you can look in to is seeing if a repair shop can build the alternatior up.
