My Kubota Willys has a one wire alternator. It also has a set of two spades that I've been told are not used. I got a feeling one of those spades is for the exciter. I'm sure I'll be back to this very problem with my own set up. I definitely won't be over revving my diesel to get the thing to charge. I have a bunch of diagrams showing all the different ways to wire it. I also plan on installing a light that goes out when it is charging, besides a amp gauge. I'll be running both 12 and 6 volt on my set up. I bought a 20 amp output electronic converter that drops 12 to 6 volt for the gauges and spotlight. The rest will be 12 volt. Turn signals , radio, etc. Negative ground for all. I also bought a fuse block (glass tube type) That separates 12 and 6 volt. Pretty cool unit. If only it was in paint. What a royal pain. The painting is just a huge obstacle to overcome.
Wow!, hell of a story there!, thought for a minute there you started driving a gravel truck!
Oily, is it the alt. That came with the engine ?, if so it may not need to be revel up to "Excite" ..... Seems the Jap offerings overcame some of the unpleasantness of the Delco.

Glad you liked the story Lee. It's a Nippen Denso alternator I bought new off ebay. Recommended by Larry/Leimhold? out of Denver. He has one on his Kubota powered 3A. He sent me wiring schematics for it also. Very helpful fellow. I've tried to get him to come up for the BHR, but he's a busy guy. Has to work and make money. Me, I work and spend money.
oilleaker1: Scotch and snow = Scotties!!!!!! It's crazy here too!

oilleaker1: Two of my trees lost large limbs. The deer like eating the leaves. This year-----no spring for us. Will go right into summer.

cline48: If we got the snow you got it would have been disastrous on our trees. They are fully leafed out now.

m38mike: Muley, we spent the day driving mud and exploring new ground for camping near South Park. We came to a reality that we may not have access to the mountain passes we'd like to drive in early July. Kinda trimmed back our scope of what to see.

Scoutpilot: Coffee's up.

m38mike: Kinda pretty looking over a steaming cup at the mountains all painted with feet of fresh new snow. Lots of white where rocks were before.
