Re: DT360 or 466?

Easy way to tell:
The 360's valve cover has ridges in it that bump out
The 466's valve cover has ridges that bump in(like little gutters)
It will also say on the emissions sticker(if it still has one).

Alternators are named because of the electrical type of energy. They make AC power. The AC is converted to DC to be compatible to the DC battery. Usually an alternator will not charge unless the battery has at least a 12 volt charge. Alternators merely amplify voltage and amperage. The unit uses 12 volts to make 14-16 volts. The unit uses about 1/2 of 1 amp and can make up 100 amps of energy. The number one reason for battery and alternator failure is poor electrical connections at these components....... Frank

Re: DT360 or 466?

My DT466 has a metal tag on top of the valve cover towards the back of the engine that gives some information including engine model and displacement.
