I am going to convert my 57 Chevy Sedan from a generator to an alternator.
Is there anything special that I need to do to make this work with existing gauges etc.

Danchuk (and others) sell replacement harness' to use with an alternator as opposed to a generator. I used one of theirs and as I recall it bypasses the voltage regulator but still has the generator light funtion on the instrument panel.

I used a GM alternator that has one main lug and a two prong plug that the harness plugged right into on the side of the alternator.

I think it is pretty simple to modify your existing wiring as well and someone will probably jump in with that solution.

Thanks, for some reason I thought it would be more difficult than that. I am a good customer of Danchuk's. I will order the harness.
