Ok,after a lot of hassle I purchase
a new balmar alternator, a 622-110,which is a 110 amps max. I had to get it machined to fit the mount as well as the pulley( I have a Volvo
MD17c). I also fitted a new balmar ARS regulator. Hell, it did not work at the testing stage, so after quite a while on the phone
to Balmar, the were very helpful, they decided that the regulator is faulty and suggested the use of a ford single
stage regulator as a temporary solution.. That I did, it only cost 25 bucks. Now my system works fine, charging
at about 14.4 volts. Blamar has given me a ra number to repair the faulty unit. But the for unit will stay on the boat as a standby. Incidentally the ford unit and the balmar are basically plug
compatible with only the ground wire needing re-routing.
