    The 3rd wire Black/red I can get 6 volts out of when hooked up as described. I don’t think a diode is going to help. I’d have to run a relay or something goofy.

    The charging light can be hooked to switched ignition to keep it from coming on….but its not reading if the alternator is chargning/spinning.

    You’d find out the alternator went bad after the batteries drained.

    The other secenario, if the serpetine belt broke/came off, you would feel the loss of power steering.

    Just don’t use the dish washer as a parts washer. OK!? 😆

    Yep, one way clutch.

     

    So this EE20 alternator is very hard to find. Used condition on ebay in bulgaria and U.K. Looking at pictures it seems as maybe a 2014-2016 forester uses a similar mounting patteren.

    I talked with Brian at small car today, his advise was to wire so that its charging, and disable the light. Its a work around.

    I can do that with 12volts to white/red & black/yellow I get 14.3volts -good charging.

    If I only energize the black/yellow I get 15.4 volts. That tells me its “full field” and not good.

    Most people are telling me white/red goes to full time Battery+ 12v.
    That leaves the black/yellow that I should run to switched ignition power source 12v.

    If I have this hooked up incorrectly I will notice the battery going dead? Sound correct Andy?

    It feels like the alternator has a clutch on it. I can spin the hub and pulley seperately. See the bearing.

    The solar panel arrived today. I choose 100w flexible type. Its a thin piece of plastic. I like the slim line. There is room for another one just forward of the rib if you want to add on later.  I installed it with 3m double sided tape and adhesion promoter. Make sure you camp with the top facing south for best results.

    Check that out, what do you think?

    Looks fresh. I’m excited to see what you do.

    Good idea KB I’ll call them up to verify.

    Thanks Andy. I’ve tried 12 volts on every wire. Only the black/yellow has any effect. I get 15.3v at the battery+ terminal, and 6 volts out of the black/red….not enough to turn out the idiot light.

    We must have a bad alternator.

    It could be something with the jet transition from idle jets to main jets. Which would be emulsion tube characteristics. Try the 128 main jets and see what happens.

    Emulsion tubes control the main jet circuit. The introduce air into the fuel before sending the mixture to nozzles to spray into the engine(just above the the venturis). They have different hole arrangements drilled though the sides of the emulsion tubes to change this effect.  I am not familiar with selecting or changing emulsion tubes on Dellortos, so it may be a bit of trial and error.

    I think JJ tossed the last few in the garbage a few years ago.

    If we knew they were worth $20 each….

    I ordered that cool switchback rack from RMW a while ago. Got it out of the box to install yesterday and realized we’re missing half of the rack. The part that swings out is a separate rack. doh.

    Having problems with the 3 wire subaru alternator too. It seems that most subarus use a voltage “sense” wire in addition to the charging light wire. This one is different. I can trick the alternator into charging(producing 14 volts), But I can’t get any of the wires to make 12 volts to send to the idiot charging light to keep it from turning on. I contacted boxeer.com Greg and he didn’t really know, told me to get a hold of one of his customers. Did that and tried wiring like his customer suggested with no result. Maybe we have a bad alternator.

    I wish someone could tell me exactly whats up with a ee20 3 wire alternator.

    VS plate mount looks clean^^^ “Slammed by KCW” 🙂 How times change. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2128257

     

     

    AAahahahhaha $20 for a plastic plate frame. Blackdog1999 has lost his mind;. 😆 I think a pile of 100 plastic plate frames costs about $20 new.
