I replaced my alternator today with a Mallory 9-19101. I put the boat on the hose and fired it up. Checked the volt meter and and the alternator wasn't charging. I shut the engine down to check it. I put my hand on it and was pretty warm. THe alternator came with the wires for the sensor and exciter in place so it was just a matter matching them to the wiring harness and connect. The orange wire was no problem either. I connected the ground wire to a terminal marked "E". From my British car days E stood for earth which was the ground. The 2 other terminals were capped. I checked my wiring and the the reset button and did not find anything. I emailed Mallory today, but I thought i would take a shot here too. HELP!
