How do i go from external to internal alernator?


It only comes with an internal alternator. I believe it has a regulator mounted "externally" in the motor compartment. On modern alternators the regulator is smaller and built in and is "solid state" no moving parts like the regular the car came with. Research a conversion kit - you can hook up a modern alternator but you have to do something with the regulator wires. Hit a classic oldsmobile forum for guidence.

New Porsche 911 battery April 2012, car won't turn over at all.


It could be that your alternator is dead again. Check to see that you have at least 12 volts across the battery when you're trying to start the engine. It could also be the switch that tells the car that the clutch is pushed all the way in (for manual models, or that the car is in park for auto shifters)

2003 911 carrea has fc p0113 intake air temp sensor high out put has new air mass. sensor replace fc come back .please advisor for further diag.


A code P0113 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Internally failed IAT sensor
  • Faulty connection at IAT sensor
  • Open in IAT ground circuit or signal circuit
  • Short to voltage in IAT signal circuit or reference circuit
  • IAT harness and/or wiring routed too close to high-voltage wiring (e.g. alternator, spark plug cables, etc.)
  • Faulty PCM (less likely but not impossible)

Need wiring diagram for 1967 camaro v8 changed from external regulator to alternator with internal regulator


I am assuming you are now using a 1976 style GM alt.
The most common and popular model.
You need one 10 gauge wire from the battery to the alternator output.
This can be run directly from the battery +.
Run a short 10 gauge wire from alt output to large wire at regulator plug on alt.
Run small wire on alt reg plug to Bat light wire.
A new alt regulator plug pigtail can be bought at any parts store and is recommended.

The existing regulator should have the connections marked.
One of those wires will be the bat light wire if needed.
If you have a amp meter or voltmeter in the vehicle.....use your existing large output wire (usually red) to hook up to the new alt output connection.

1995 911 car keys


Buy yourself a replacement key blank for the Porsche 911 993 - then simply take it to a key cutter and get it cut by them to match your existing key. Be aware that the blank is specific to the 993 variant and although some of the earlier models blanks are cheaper they will not work.

Hope that helps
