Re: Hitachi 60 Amp alternator for Yanmar 3GM


One thing to keep in mind you are doubling the current through wires that were designed for a different alternate. I’m not familiar with that engine or that wiring system but most equipment is only wired heavy enough to carry what was originally on the engine. Just my two cents, Mike.
