Your welcome Peter.

The CS130 has much more low rpm output than a 12 Si alternator does. So if you need lots of current at idle (electric fans) then it is far superior imo. The reason for this is the much larger magnetic field created by the rotor coil. This is due to the fact that the coil is wound much higher on the core bobbin and better quality steel is used for the pole fingers. Also, with modern day production cnc machining, the gap from the rotor to the stator core is much smaller.

If you want the stock h-body appearance, you can take the guts out of a 94 amp 12Si and put them all in your 10Si case without modification but idle voltage may drop under heavy loads.

what he said...anything else is something out of the stone ages....one wire has it's own problems.........i even put a cs on an '57 crawler where it's high output at low rpm makes it ideal.........john b

On the 10SI you just need to swap out the stator. Wilson Electric makes a 100amp stator: part # 67-01-3322A.

12Si has a different rotor, different stator, different rectifier and a different regulator. You can swap only the stator coil as DB suggests, but u won't get the intended output without the 12Si rotor/regulator. The 12 Si proper rotor has different fingers than the 10Si and a different coil draw ~ 5 to 6 amps on 12 volts whereas 10Si rotors generaly draw between 2.5 to 3.5 amps. Less primary magnetic field = less secondary output.

There seems to be some confusion about Si rectifiers, here's a graphic I made showing the differences between:
