ok, so it turns out that the alternator that I have currently is an industrial KING KONG & HULK version. It apparently doesn't get much more powerful than what I got. It has no wire harness hook up on the casing, only the little wire you see coming out going straight to the battery. So I gotta get it out of the truck and possibly rebuilt ( could cost up to $500 to rebuild ) If i choose to go with a new one, I would have to obtain the actual wiring diagram that shows which wires go into the wiring harness that plugs into the alternator ( which is the way it should be, however someone had to re-wire the system now to power the gauges from the current alternator ) I can NOT find anything to get me close to the color coded wires or find the actual wires that go into the harness. I've checked the starter and everywhere else, still nothing is visable. BLECH !!! and the paint guy is coming tomorrow to do up the truck.
