    ALT upgrade.....in pics

    The C130 that comes stock is kinda weak....so a worth while upgrade is a AD244.....the 244 can come in a 145 amp or a 105 .....so i go the 145 of course.....local junkyard had 1.....40$......now you have to be careful....use a 2003 truck as a part locator guide.....244's come in different brackets and diff excitor plugs......2 pin and 4 pin......f bods are 4 pin...the 244 is a BIT bigger than the 130....it just cleared the PS lines with a little tweakin......the excitor plug with the 244 in was a bit tight stock....to tight for me.....so i spliced in a new plug with about a extra inch of slack.....i did have some new cable to wire from the alt to the batt....needed for the extra amps IMO......but i cut it to short and will have to get more to finish that part of the job.....enjoy
