I bought my 6v alternator kit here. A very knowledgeable guy. I had pulley alignment problems with adapting the kit to a flathead 6, so I called him and he exchanged the pulley at no charge.

True but not as bad as some that I've seen.

Did Chris convert the truck to 12 volt, or leave it 6 volt?

Did you try to "flash the field"? Assuming that you have a generator/regulator setup:

From the NAPA/Echlin "Manual for the Automotive Electrician", edition circa 1955:
Ford-Merc-Lincoln remove Field wire and touch to Batt wire momentarily; most other cars, touch jumper from Arm to Batt at regulator. For cutout 3-brush Fords, jumper between two terminals on cutout.
Just a thought. This is why I went to an alternator also.

I'll look into it... Also I see that you can oil the generator, any parcitular oil ..amount?
Quality power auto got back to me with a reasonable price for the Alt setup.

Ive gone with quailty power auto. Answered all my emails and the price was ok to get it to Australia. All up was about $305 AUD for the whole kit bracket and fan pulley too delivered . Just to by that alternator here [a chrome one pfft who wants that] is $299!. And I have to drive 3/4 hour there and 3/4 hour back just to get it.
I'll let you know how easy it is to fit etc.

New Alt

All has arrived , fitted no probs, must say they were a little rough when they fitted the pulley it was scratched on the inside I had to gently file it. Also quiet noisy.. Does the job..
