Alternator upgrade

Posted by Peter Kennedy on 2/10/2015 to Projects
Question: I need to replace my alternator for a Yanmar 3YM30 /2006. It is a Hitachi 60amp and I am thinking in replacing it with a higher amp output. I might then need to replace perhaps the pulleys for the water pump and the crank shaft and then of course consider a serpentine or other type of belts. Would appreciate your suggestions?. Thanks.
