    Using a DC Motor as a generator that outputs 0 - 24 Volts and 14 Amps. It is connected to a 25 Amp Charge Controller which goes to a lead acid battery. Looking for an appropriately sized blocking diode with a heat sink. Found one for $69 but I feel that is over priced. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Thanks. Any ideas how to bolt it to the heat sink. Kind of confused on how to hook it up. All i know is the voltage is going into the annode and leaving the cathode but I have no idea how to connect this heat sink.

    The diode has a threaded stud, probably 8-32 or 10-32 & 3/8 " long. Drill & tap or drill & nut to heat sink. It may come with nut and insulator.
