Difference between the dual and single rectifier alternators. Single rectifier is less reliable and cannot produce as much, but it is also cheaper and can fit in more applications. Dual rectifier has higher output and reliability, but is more expensive and takes up more room, limiting applications. The single rectifier may be given more reliability with the addition of a quicktifier remote rectifier system. There are also three common mounting styles the GM commonly uses a 2 foot 2 inch mount, some use the 6-12 mount, and '96-'01 3.8 liter V6 using the CS-130D type alternator use a third stretched foot mount shown below.

This mount is commonly used on '96-'01 3.8 liter V6 equipped with the Delco Remy CS130D type alternator.

The two foot 2" mount. It is mainly used on '96 and newer GM vehicles, commonly Chevy trucks and SUVs. A modified version will fit 90-95 GM trucks

The 6/12 mount commonly used on Camaros, Firebirds, Caprices, Corvettes, Marine and Industrial

Here we show the CS-130 alternator (left) next to a version of the CS-144 (right) that will fit directly in place of your existing alternator on many 1990-1995 GM vehicles. We have different versions and mounting configurations for other year, model and engine GM vehicles.

Upgrade to the Larger CS144 Series Alternator

The CS-144 produces more power at idle and is much more reliable. For custom applications we can install many different pulley types, like single & dual V-Belt, 8-Groove serpentine, etc.

CS144 Series Dual Rectifier Alternators

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! 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.

Delco Remy Type CS144 Series Single Bridge Rectifier High Output Alternator and Standard Output Alternators with either Standard type plug-in or Self Exciting (one wire) version

Single Bridge Rectifier CS144 Alternators can be used to either replace a broken stock units or upgrade from smaller alternators that give less output at idle and are less reliable. The CS-144 can replace the CS130, 10Si, 12Si, 15,Si, 17Si. Some slight modifications may be required and you may need a wiring harness adapter, call to check on your vehicle

Our dual rectifier kits use the Quicktifier to increase the life and durability of your alternator. We also provide fully assembled dual rectifier rear cases to convert your existing alternator to a dual rectifier with ease.

CS144 Series dual rectifier conversion kits. Conversion housings come pre-assembled for easy conversion where space allows. We also offer Quicktifier kits to add a new rectifier without the extra space.

Quicktifier Dual Remote Rectifier System

The Quicktifier Dual and Triple Rectifier Alternator Upgrade Kit allows you to take any existing alternator and make it an extreme duty dual or triple rectifier alternator. If you simply don't have room for our Extreme Duty Dual Rectifier CS144 alternator, add the Quicktifier 210 Dual or 420 Triple Rectifier Conversion kit. Run the three AC lines from the CS144 stator leads to the three studs on the Quicktifier's bridge rectifier. Then connect the Quicktifier and your alternator together in parallel. You now have Quicktifier Dual or Triple Rectifier durability on your existing alternator.
