When the job is finished, it is customary to stop.
This thread is unlikely to benefit from further development, nor from idle trolling. Find something else to do.

no job is ever finished on a boat....
I was looking on Virtual Village today and found some 3 phase 80 amp bridge rectifiers with built in heat sinks about 20 quid with post.......( up to 150 A available for a few more quid)

Now if you brought 3 wires out from your starting alternator stator to the 3 inputs on the rectifier and connected your house battery to the + and - you would have a true add on system using both alternators to charge the house . one battery could not discharge into the other .house battery could not hold down the starting battery ,no total re wires required etc etc

Shame its so difficult to post photos our you would just see a box with 5 wires to connect

Now you all have nice day and try not to be so rude you are getting the boating community a bad name

perhaps the moderator should consider if a post going to 600 + is of any use to anyone with the information so burried...it needs reducing to about 10 relavent posts which give the solutons available and supporting information..

Good idea. It will leave the original post, Snibble's solution and nothing else.

well that would be more use than what we have now ......snibbles and the 3 phase from 100 posts back that covers those who want to strip the alternator and those who dont. And perhaps some reference to where you can get the bits

If you have influence with a moderator go for it

I've been powering the contactor solely from W since we did this and the contactor doesn't open when the voltage at the other alt rises above the domestic alt. As I'm now charging Vince's sealed batteries it will be difficult to replicate the .4V difference but, trust me, it's never opened, even when I've gone to the pub and forgotten the alts are paralleled for a couple of hours.

Also a drawback is that, certainly with my setup the tacho is driven from the service alt's W and if it stopped working surely the tacho would stop counting.

If you want to get it working, it might be best to meet up with someone else from the forum who is good with this sort of stuff, and work on it as a team.

cheers,

For me at least, better than trying to go step by step...

But seriously, and with all due respect, there are buried within this thread concerns from mightier authorities than my humble self that W won't stop working...

Can I hand you up this shovel now. :lol:
