    had a look in the scrapyard for the very thing you want, i bought a vauxall nova, but a very small one can be found on a sotty van, not sure if it's single wire

    a lot of the japanese ones are small but not many are 1 wire. from memory its only the dihatsu 3 cylinder that runs 1 wire as standard. why do you need 1 wire? its not to hard to run a feed wire, and will save a lot of cash and time searching.

    Daihatsu and Suzuki SJ use a small Denso alternator, 40A output IIRC. As Trevd said, these aren't one wire but you usually only need a wire from the switched ignition as well as the B lead to make them work.

    Edit: There's some useful information on the connections for these alternators on this page: http://www.brise.co.uk/alternators.html scroll down the page and there's a small diagram.
