Mainly bad connections on the power from the alternator through to the battery and the main grounds. Also check voltage at the battery and alternator to make sure that the EMS is not reading from a bad spot. They can possibly test your alternator as well, but it would need to be removed.

Will do--thanks much, John.

Any chance at all that this is a genuine Iskra:

Price seems suspiciously low . . .

Yeah, I saw that in the description but the price makes me wonder--it's not like it would be the first time someone sold Chinese knock-offs on Amazon and tried to pass them off as genuine . . .

Revived from the dead... is the wiring on the Iskra the same as the stock 65amp or is it just the mounting location that's the same? If the wiring is different, can someone explain the process?

Looking at this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01FF...khL&ref=plSrch

Thx

Pretty straightforward, stock is on the left. Replaced the pulley (stock has an extra groove and is smaller). Had to drill out the lower mounting hole (it was threaded) and convert the spade (on wire "W") to a ring connector. The stock heatshield fit over one bolt and ziptied one of the others to the plastic cover.

Amazon Iskra

Lee

Did you order your Iskra alternator from the Amazon supplier you linked to in your thread?

It looks like it's my turn, and that's a great price...

Thanks,
Henry

As a follow up to my previous post - I ordered Mahle-Letrika part #11203205 (formerly Iskra). It's installed and generating power...

I've collected some thoughts on the unit here - Shearpin.org - Mahle-Letrika 11203205 Alternator

Thanks again to previous posters...

Henry
