ford 3G large case, small case comparison

In 1999 Ford Motor Company switched from using the large case 3G series alternator on the 7.3L Power Stroke Diesel to the small case 110 amp 6G series alternator. Before 1999, F Series Trucks, Excursion, and E Series applications used the large case 3G series . Though some engine options allow an upgrade to the tougher Extreme Duty 250 Amp 6G Series Alternator many still require the 3G Series Heavy Duty Alternator. After 1999 Ford no longer offered the large case 3G alternator in an upgrade option for Power Stroke diesel equipped vehicles. The small case 110 amp 6G series alternator that comes standard on the Power Stroke Diesel since 1999 has been plagued with reliability issues , the component that most often fails is the Bridge Rectifier . Upgrading the small case unit to a higher amperage and stay in the small case housing size just compounds the problems . For 1999 and newer Ford Power Stroke Diesel and gas engine model Ford trucks & suv's the better choice is the Large Case Heavy Duty large Case 6Gseries.
