                  Balmar 6-Series Light Duty Dual Foot Marine Alternator

                  Item # 861603


                  Balmar 70A, 6-Series Light Duty Alternators are designed for recreational marine applications and are engineered to replace most OEM alternators on a wide variety of marine gasoline and diesel engines. These alternators deliver high-output performance in a compact, small-case package and are available in common mounting configurations.


                  • Designed for recreational marine applications
                  • Ideal for modest charging upgrades
                  • Generates 70 amps
                  • Dual fan cooling
                  • High airflow frame
                  • Maximum RPM: 12,000
                  • Recommended for use with Balmar multi-stage voltage regulators (Sold with alternators in kits or separately)
                  • Engineered to replace most OEM alternators on a wide variety of marine gasoline and diesel engines
                  • Available in (3) mounting configurations
                    • Saddle Mount: 3.15" (Typical of Yanmar engines)
                    • Single Foot Mount: Convertible to support 1" Motorola and 2" Delco style mounting configurations
                    • J-180 Mount: 4"

                  Balmar Smart Ready Technology:

                  • Internal Regulation is a feature unique to the 6-Series alternator
                  • Enables the alternator to be used with smart Balmar external regulation, or as a stand-alone, internally regulated alternator system
                  • Fixed, 14.1-volt charge controller is ideal as a built-in back-up regulator for the cruiser, or as a full-time regulator for systems where smart, multi-stage regulation is not required
                  • If battery loads are relatively small and your engine is running frequently, the alternator's internal regulator may be sufficient to support your electrical needs without external regulation
                  • If your vessel utilizes larger deep-cycle battery banks or the engine's duty cycle is less frequent (as is the case in most sailing applications), the 6-Series Alternator combines and works seamlessly with Balmar's ARS-5Vage Regulator or Max Charge Voltage Regulator
                  • USCG Title 33, ISO, SAE and CE Compliant

                  Pulley Designations:

                  • "SV" = 1/2" Single Pulley
                  • "DV" = 1/2" Dual Vee
                  • "K6" = K-6 Serpentine
                  • "J10" = J-10 AltMount® Serpentine

                  The selection process includes the following steps:

                  • Step 1: Determine your vessel's electrical load
                  • Step 2: Identify your existing battery bank technology and capacity
                  • Step 3: Select your optimum alternator output
                  • Step 4: Identify the alternator mounting style present on your engine
                  • Step 5: Determine your belt and pulley requirements
                  • Step 6: Select additional charging system options


                  • Balmar's 1/2" Deep Vee Pulleys (single and dual) can accept a 3/8" and 7/16" belts
                  • Image is for reference only, actual product may vary

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternator. Just started the motor after 4 years of inactivity and the new alternator works great!
