EXTREME DUTY DUAL RECTIFIER The rectifier is the most common cause of alternator failure. It's the only choice for super heavy duty operation. If you are using your alternator to it's extreme, YOU MUST HAVE THIS ALTERNATOR!
For GM Vehicles and other adapted applications Offered in 140, 170, 200, 250, and now on special order 350 amp versions, call 1-616-785-7990 for details. With many different front housing mounting configurations, a direct fit in your GM vehicle or adaptive fit to many vehicle types is likely. We have helped with many adaptive applications like Busses, Porsche's, Boats, Fords and many others.
Alternators produce AC current, just like the current from your house wall outlet. Then it uses a bridge rectifier, typically with 6 diodes, to convert the AC current to DC for the battery and vehicles electrical system. With Dual Rectifiers, you get 12 Diodes, which spreads the current load over a much larger area making the alternator twice as durable and twice as efficient at converting the AC current it makes to DC. The many benefits include: less heat build up, less current loss, higher amperage output when hot, more power at idle. Plus, the service duty and life increases substantially. When the rectifier heats up the diodes won't pass as much amperage through them, therefore, the amperage output drops. With our double rectifier alternator you have twice the amperage carrying capacity and double the cooling surface area to keep the diodes cool. This all adds up to...... MORE POWER, LESS HEAT PROBLEMS and GREATER RELIABILITY.

NOTE: All alternators below come complete with the pulley type specified for your vehicle. Please note your vehicle type in the "customer comment" box at the end of the order process. To specify special pulley types, other than stock, for special applications, also use the "customer comment" box. A variety of pulleys with 17 mm center hole, including 4,5,6,7 and 8 groove serpentine type or 3/8, 1/2 and 3/4 inch wide single V-belt type or with 1/2 inch wide double V-belt type can be installed.
You can see the difference. With the Extreme Duty Dual Rectifier Alternator you get more output, more durability, and a longer lifespan. A direct fit from your old style CS-130 and the newer CS-130D type Alternators.
Direct mounting to the older style CS-130 as well as the newer style CS-130D type Alternators. Upgrade, and get higher output and better durability with our Extreme Duty Dual Rectifier CS-144 type Alternator today!
Note: Please provide vehicle year, make, model, engine, etc. on the customer comment page during the order process
We have many wiring harness adapters that allow you to install the CS-130 or CS-144 alternator into almost any year GM vehicle. We also have the wiring harness pig tails that allow you to hard wire the CS-144 into any application. If you are not sure of what harness you need, e-mail us and we can help.
