It's fiance, finance is what you do when you buy something but can't pay for all of it "up front."

Have not heard of the NC Group but will look them up. New wiring harness going in now. What a pain....nothing painless about it lol
I know paint is not cheap. I have only bought my red in QT cans (2) so far to do the inside of the cab, door jambs, under hood area but not the hood it's self. Thinking I will need a gal of red and 2 qt of white to do the outside of my truck yet.

The NC chapter has a dinner coming up on the 28th in Lexington at Speedy's about 7:00
Little far from me and hours with work don't work for me but some are going to car pool think, from Raleigh area.

I was going to say just make one. Not knowing how & where the GEN was and guessing the ALT will go there what all is needed to fit the ALT there.
If you can post a picture or 2 we might be able to point you to something that may work with little work.

I used one from here:

I cannot remember which one. I think it was either A200 or A265. Instead of using the existing generator bracket, I bolted the long "L bracket" directly to the block and built it up from there. The existing tension bracket worked. The original belt just fit but is difficult to install. The alternator was a 10si Delcotron with upgraded output and a single wire conversion that I built up from spares. It's been working fine all along.

Do you have any more pics of the bed restoration? I'm going to be taking mine apart soon to replace the wood floor & repair some rust & it looks like you did a great job on yours.

Paint job and the bed look great! I like the way the front end looks with the white bumper.

Beautiful truck, attention to detail. That's an authentic looking shade of paint?

Beautiful job! I'm doing a low budget cosmetic restore on a '59 dump truck. Swapping cab and front clip but couldn't justify expensive paint so settled for tractor enamel with hardener. Thanks for posting. Very inspiring to someone getting tired of sanding.

We paid $500 for paint and primer single stage summit racing. We mixed blue green and white to get this color. We are I this for around $13k.
