Hi guys, anyone got any leads as to where I can get and alernator conversion kit for my ' 37 21 stud, the pulley, bracket and alternator altogether at a reasonable price. Need it sent to Australia though.. Is it cheaper to buy the parts seperate?
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.
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.
