any updates

hey Folks


Been chatting with ALBUQ-F1 on another post but thought I'd bump this one,


Looking for a 1 wire alternator and bracket, using wide belt. for a 51/52 flathead 8 for my pickup.
Didn't really want to grind anything, not a fan of buying new stuff and then grinding it to powder! LOL


I too found speedway's sling shot mount and their note mentioning the need to do a buncha grinding.


But, in my case that's what the PO did, ground the front side of 1 of 4 of the thin bolts that hold the alt together, and used the orginal generator mount minus the strap. And added a longer thin pin type bolt to keep it from swaying on the 1 main bolt holding it on.
It aint pretty but it's in there, it's a 67 Impala 12v alt with ext volt reg.


Going to look to see if I can get a rebuild/convert to a 1 wire but
plan b was a new alt and mount.


Really like the powermaster (12v 1 wire alt that looks like a generator)
but the price got me, if I can go cheaper and no grinding I'd prefer that route.

Mac's has one too but it's only 40 amps?

Mid West Early Ford in Ohio, maybe Speedway too.

jackpot?

Well,


I may have just found 2 sites that have the slingshot adaptors.


Flathead Ford


alangrovecomponents has a nice informative site shows you the water pump measurements and alternator orientation so you get the right bracket.


alangrove dealer list; (site says you can buy from them (call in orders)
Dealer List


and


Flathead Ford Alternator Brackets
these guys have the same stuff within a few dollars of alangrove.


Will do more digging.
Anyone shop with any of these guys?

That's an excellent site! You should be set with one of their slingshots.

1950FordF1 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I bought my second bracket from:
Ford Flathead generator to alternator conversion b
It is aluminum, CNC machined from solid bar stock and it fit well. The earlier ones were steel. I have been happy with both.
They sell for about $65.
