My boat came with a Hehr 150amp alternator
that was not on the old Volkswagen 5 cylinder Pathfinder diesel engine
. I'm assuming it was a spare or it was taken off with other parts(injector lines, reefer compressor
, etx). I now have a Yanmar
4hj4-te 75hp engine
and I'm looking to upgrade my 120amp Hitachi that came with it. I understand that the Hitachi alts are not the best when used with a Balmar
mc-614 which I have. I found scarce info on this alternator
on the net and what I found is dated 10 or more years back.
That said, I'm no alternator guru so I don't know, without taking my Hitachi off, if the Hehr will even fit. I don't know what size/case my Hitachi is as it's not in the manual. I had the Hehr checked out by the local alt shop and it works.
Would this fits Yanmar
and if so would it be worth using with my external regulator
? Or should I just get a new 160amp Grasser or balmar
