100 amp high output alternator

Have 2 high output, 100 amp delco style (external voltage regulation) alternators for sale. Both units fully functioning as each unit was rebuilt as a general service/maintenance program in past 5 years.
Units were rotated for use every other year, and the second kept as spare during cruising periods.
A complete re-powering and additional electrical upgrade, have rendered these 2 units expendable. Came off Perkins 4-108.
Located MA. $100 for each unit.
Will post pictures shortly.

Also have Ample Power Energy Monitoring system available as all regulation and power distribution/control is being upgraded.

Re: 100 amp high output alternator

Alternator pics attached.
As well as pictures of the Ample Controller, Smart Regulator and Isolator/Eliminator. All are/were working order until I had the engined pulled in December. Ample is still installed and monitoring house batteries; starter was pulled. I can remove fairly quickly.
I'll let the Ample stuff go for another $100; all in.

I purchased a 100 amp alternator some years ago with a single sheave drive. It ran extremely hot, shutting down the unit. Had it checked and was advised it needed two belts.
I see your units have single sheaves and am curious how you managed to operate them?
I have a Yanmar 4-JHE

Re: 100 amp high output alternator

The ample power monitor/regulation system takes care of automatically controlling the temp of the alternator & the temp of the battery's. It shuts down and regulates accordingly.
The alternator plugs into the smart (mutli-step) regulator and there are temperatures wires on all batteries, including a temp wire on the alternator.

I've run over 24 hours under power in less than desirable air/wind conditions under long cruise situations any number of times in last 8 years, with no problems. The other consideration is that the Yanmar is a far higher rpm/hp revving engine than a perkins 4-108. That could be a contributing factor on the sheave requirements.
