Here's a comparison of a 2002 with a 2006 Joe...I've an 06 2500 with a 150 amp alt. Went out on us this week . I happen to have a new factory unit that came with my 02 when it was purchased . Does any know if it will fit the 06 ?
Both are the same, link 1 is a 120amp, link 2 is a 90amp. Just make sure that the replacement is a 150amp if your van is equipped with power options (110V converter, wheelchair ramp, etc.). Otherwise a 90amp will do.Here's a comparison of a 2002 with a 2006 Joe...
When I changed from a 90 amp up to a 150 amp the belt still fit. The over-running clutch pulleys appear to be the same size. I haven't noticed part number listings for those pulleys specifying the amperage of the alternator. FWIW. vicQuestion: does the same serpentine belt fit all, or do you need different belt lengths?
Copper yes, welding cable NO.My favorite wire to use is welding wire. It is multi-stranded and the casing is designed to handle a lot of heat. Stay away from aluminum wire if you can. Copper is the best.
Both diodes and contactors have their pros and cons. If using a diode you need to be sure the voltage regulator is sensing the battery voltage NOT the diode common. All diodes have voltage drop.Diode based battery isolators are crap also. I have measured over 1.5 volts loss through them and they produce a lot of heat and resistance. Replace them with heavy duty contactor switches which are rated for continuos duty not momentary duty such as a starter relay would use.
Method 1: option listing on dealer's inventory/sales sheetWhere do you find the amp rating on any alternator in sprinters [06 2500 shc] ?
Maybe here? Might as well point anyone reading this thread to there now anyway. vic...
