Ford Excursion Alternator

If the original equipment is a 100 amp alternator and there is a 60 amp on the truck and the alternator I am going to put on is a 150 amp, do I have to change anything on the engine such as the wiring harness or related parts. I know on some vehicles you have to change things. Please let me know or point me in the right direction.

    Thanks for the input. I am going to be safe because I am just a mechanic. I just found 200 amp alternators and they recommend the fuse block wiring harness. Once again thanks and 68W you are the one who needs to be safe.

Take it to a national chain parts store like Autozone and have them test your alternator. Have them test your whole electrical system. It quick and its free. I'm thinking your alternator/battery is going bad. Hope this helps you out.

1977 f 100 carging problem

run a jumper from your alternator to your battery. This is a temporary fix and should stabilize the voltage and charge the system. It seems there is a short or grounding problem somewhere between the alternator and battery, so you will need follow the wiring but given the age of the vehicle, you should change the wiring from your generator or alternator to your battery. Be sure when you are running a jumper, your gauge wire is heavy enough and make sure the wire isn't hot. This is a temporary fix so don't go on a long road trip.
