    small alternator?

    ive just tried to fit a standerd size alternator to the pop... it goes in but there is no room for it to swing out to adjust the tension of the vee belt before it fouls on the bonnet... dont really want to put a bulge in the bonnet, can i get a smaller one to give me some more room.. any advice whats available?

    Kubota and Daihatsu alternators smallest you can get. Shop round and you can get brand new for around £40-50 .

    What about having a tensioner elsewhere on the belt run or re-locate the altenator lower down?

    This is the sort of thing and that is a standard size pulley on there to give you an idea of dimensions.

    thanks again kev... anouther advantage to that unit is it does'nt have a fan thing next to the pully

    i had thought about making a tensioner so the alternator could be static!

    no room to mount else where... unless its driven of the propshaft, but thats a hole lot of hassel
