Racing Switches & Alternators
Does an alternator increase horsepower?
An alternator doesn't increase horsepower, but if you run a custom-built street rod with an array of onboard electronics, you may need a high-output alternator to support the extras. Running those added electronics can draw more power from your alternator, making it wear out quicker. Consider an alternator with higher amps for maximum support.
Can a loose alternator bracket cause problems with my alternator?
A loose bracket can cause the alternator belt to loosen. A loose alternator belt can cause a build-up of heat and friction leading to a complete shutdown. Replace alternator brackets as soon as they show signs of wear, damage, or loosening.
