you can save a bundle and forget the kit.

the alt itself can be had for as little as 35$ from an auto store.

the lower gen bracket on a side mount is the basis for a lower bracket for the alt.

you can buy an generic upper bracket from a auto store.. one with a mount hole and a slot.. or just cut your own, then mount up.. make sure belt and pulley are correct.

if your wireing is a birdsnest.. simply rewire...

5-6' of wire handles a regular N setup.

if it was me.. I'd avoid the 1 wire jobs.. and go 3 wire. besides.. many times the 1 wire jobs cost mor ethan a 3 wire.. and on a 3 wire.. it's really a 2 wire as 1 of the 3 wires is 2" long...

Thanks for the input...I've looked around for the three wire in kit form but no luck so far. Looks like all the "kits" include one-wire alternators...including the one on this site...or did I miss something?

I realize this could be done w/o a kit - but the kits are running $100ish...The ones I'm seeing come w/new harness, pulley, the alternator, ballast resister(not needed for me), the correct nuts and bolts, and brackets. I've got an assortment of stuff around here to maybe find what I need but it would only take one trip to town for some part of the puzzle to cover the added cost of a kit....not to mention the hassle factor. My wife gives me "the look" when I take too long in the nut/bolt section of the hardware place :)

I've got no problem paying more for the "correct" three wire conversion if it comes in a kit.

unfortunately I've not seen a 3 wire in a kit.

however I have seen many 1 wire jobs that will function as 3 wire if you hook then up as 3 wire.
