Are you sure the 12 and 8 gauge wires are the output wires from the alternator to the battery and not for gauges? 12 gauge wire rating is somewhere around 20 amps and 8 gauge wire is ~50 amps. The wire run length and temperature will affect the capacity of the wire also. What size alternators are they?
