You have a 12 pole, 6 phase stator alternator. The 6-phase stator, with each phase placed 60° apart, reduces the amplitude of the current waveform. The 12-pole design also reduces the amplitude of the voltage and current waveforms. The combination of alternator frequency and multi-phasing reduces ripple and improves output harmonics.

The following page is probably not your specific alternator, but it does give all the information on pro's and con's of your type of alternator.

Hopefully that worked and it will help answer some questions.

i had one of those and i chucked it in the garbadge, first i took a dremel and drilled out the 8 diodes, those diodes are high tech,, i think you have a mess but it can be used lol.. i wouldn't want to work with it. some late model fords are wired that way to.. i think the for rangers and escourts have those as well.

I thought this might be a 6 phase alternator.  I might clean this one up and see what it will do.  It doesn't have any other electronics built in and it has easy access to the rotor.  Both connections are in a plug in the back.  Has anyone tried one of these or would I be wasting time experimenting with something already tried?
