There have been a lot of thread about getting rid of the alternator, and it seems like the natural answer to me, and I know it has been brought up before, but I don't think anyone has done it. Why not put a clutch on the alternator pulley, like an AC clutch? Yes it would require a little fabrication/creativity, but you would have no worry about field coils, and damaging anything. Plus you could just flip a switch, activate the clutch and have you alternator back. Or you could trip a relay off a volt gauge so that it automatically turned the alternator on and off at set voltages.
