    I have the Bosch 13107 also. Pretty much plug and play. Moss sells a conversion plug for early cars. Run the parallel wire, 55A is border line for the original loom gauge wire specially if you get a dead battery. If you believe in insurance, wire is cheap.

      Approximately what guage wire should we use add a secondary, parallel wire to the battery?

        I used stranded 8 gauge.

          I just installed the same alternator and need to verify that I have the wiring correct. I'm trying to source a plug for these ratty connectors. You can see the little brown wire lying off to the right with painters tape on the end, and will cap/secure it before starting the car. I also have an additional 8 gauge wire that I will add either to the middle connector, or the post at 11:00. The tape on top of the alternator is just to remind me to tighten the belt.

          I think I read somewhere that you can remove this item. I have no idea what it does, but if I need to put it back, someone please let me know. It plugs into the connector on the left side of the post at 11:00.

            It's probably an EMI noise suppression device. If you hear a whine in your radio without it, you need it.

            For just a little more, you can do it yourself!

              attach the extra wire to the center lug and Moss sells a new connector for the wire ends . Also put some vacuum caps on the "hot" posts sticking out of the back of the alt so you don't let any smoke out.
