quote Gene:

Can someone describe the update modification from generator to alternator. I am interested in knowing if a custom alternator bracket is needed or if ford parts are used. Perhaps this is documented somewhere and I have not yet discovered it. Pictures always help.

Hi Gene: I live in South Dakota and can bring my V8 conversion over for a visit if you like. My alternator is mounted on the drivers side as I have an AC compressor where the alternator is normally located. I can show you how mine is mounted and also how it is tied in to the rest of the electric system.
Give me a call at 605 770 7788.
