hey sledgehammer, i need a 1 wire that will charge well i'm driving on the street at low rmps. i haved tried just about every brand with no luck. i seen somewere that a guy says his will and i can' remember were i seen it. it was someone doing it out of a small shop or his house. i have put a volt meter on alot of alternators and none of them are charging below 2500rmp. if anyone has any info please help.

What size crank pulley are you using?
Mine with a 5" charges fine while cruising, it's just the 1 wire cheapo chrome alt from Summit.

the pully didn't work but i figured it out. i bought a painless power star and it's all better. ten alt later and one works go figure.
