Hello all. Have a question before I pull the trigger on a new alternator
I am looking to upgrade the 55 amp alt on my Westerbeke
33 to power an upcoming bank of 105s or L16Hs. The current alternator
appears to be a saddle / two food
style with a tad over 2 inches of space between the feet. (See somewhat helpful picture.)
6 series come in either a 3.15 inch saddle or a 1 (or 2) inch single
I figured I could use the 3.15 inch saddle version with an aluminum
spacer to fill the gap. It looks like I have plenty of clearance on the back side of the alternator to accompany the extended second foot.
Anyone see any issues with this?
