Thanks. At least I won't have to go back to my O-level Electronics text books!
It can't be a single output alternator-there will be at least 2 wires as the output from it.
You need to have a look at the wiring diagramme for the motor and see how many wires come out of your alternator before they get to your rectifier.


What motor is it, exactly (model and year)?

<edit> just tracked back, and seen it's a Mariner 30.

Remove the rectifier and replace it with a rectifier/regulator as I said earlier.

I am sorry but you are charging way too much

What an awesome offer

The only thing that really matters is, whether the op's engine is a 3 wire or 2 wire stator?

Fantastic, Alan. Thanks - I'll PM you with my details.

I'm sure there could be a beer in it for you, two. ;-)

It is a Mariner 60 3 cyl 2-stroke.

I think 'single output' in the manual means that all of the coils are in series and terminate in two wires, not split into two sets (four wires) or three sets (six wires) - but that just a guess.

Cheers

Was that an intentional pun?

IMO the whole point of forums is to help and be helped.

Im a bit bored of the whole "because it has to do with a boat lets chuck another zero on it" mentality, you just need to look on eBay and see what people want/charge for what is essentially scrap parts. Ridiculous! It doesnt need to be like that. I know what its like trying to "do" boating on a budget. If I can help I will, Karma an all that.

Anyway, Hugh your part is in a jiffy bag and should be with you Thursday, hope you get some joy.

Genius!

Weird thing is I just fitted a Honda regulator / rectifier to my Merc.

Ok, i had to cut & alter all the loom connections, but call Colin at Ardoran marine, I believe he has more in his bits box....

Just a wee update.

Said Honda kit was strapped to the side of the air box, two of the cooling fins were filed down so i could close the lid, and a 40 odd nautical mile round trip was had with nothing higher than 14.5V seen. Compare to 16 ish V at idle before.

If any Clamshell owners want to see what i did, post & i.ll put a pic up.
