Wanted to upgrade the 100 amp alternator
on our engine
when its rebuilt soon. Currently has balmar
100 amp with 1 3/8" belt. Since I will be using around 400 amp hours of TPPL Sears/Oddessy batteries
with high acceptance rates, and may increase it to 600-800 amphrs in the future, would like to charge as fast as possible, hence a larger alternator
I looked at balmar
, electrodyne and leese neville. All are acceptable, but the balmar is my least choice based on others recomendations.
This leese looks promising
Brushless Alternators , 160 amp and 185 amp, 12 volt, are universal replacements | Prestolite News
But I wonder how to mount is. Currently I have 1 2" mount plus adjusting arm. This is either a 4" mount or a pad mount.
I could use the balmar mount Balmar Charging System Accessories
but am not sure how to mount it in the engine
Anyone have this mount or seen it installed? How is it done? I plan on puttnig in a serpentine belt for this, should be fine with the 160 amps.
