Alternator that Looks Like Generator

It's not producing 45 amps all the time though. Round town (= low engine speeds / hot engine with (aftermarket) electric fan running) my voltmeter drops from its normal 14V to 12.5 even with an 45A alternator. That's where the dynamo is going to struggle. With the original Lotus fan and dynamo it used to be down in the 11's.
