I see Summit sells Alternators for the one wire conversion. I figure since my engine bay is empty, now would be the time to get rid of the voltage regulator and wire it. I figure I'll need the extra juice for the HR Air fan and the MSD I'm putting in with the new engine. My question: Is there a cut and dried method of doing this? What do I do with the old wiring for the VR? I'm sure instructions come with the new alternator but I'm not sure how good they'll be. Any experience or advice anyone can share would be appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds like a piece of cake. Did you use a GM alternator? Any issues with the pulley lining up? Thanks.

Good question. I'd hate to have to add another guage. I've already got a mechanical OP guage under the dash. Maybe I can just rig up an idiot light? Hopefully that wouldn't be too difficult. Any ideas? Look for a PM from me.
