Alternayor conversion

Post by Justme63 »



I am resurection a 85 GL1200 and I am going to do an alternator conversion. My problem is locating a poorboy kit. Does anyone know if Don is still selling them? I will fab my own mounts if I have to but I would purchase the mounting kit if I can find one at a reasonable price. Any other suggestions would be welcome

don_pigott@yahoo.com should work. Yes you can make your own brackets, I bought the mounting kit from Don. His pulley is nice and things fit properly. Don has done all the heavy lifting so it is an easy install. You really should change your timing belts while you are doing this job. :)

If your capable of fabricating your mounting brackets why not try the Jegs super mini alternator. These things are about the size of your fist. I had mounted one of these in my dragster. This unit was mounted between frame rails with a pitch of 19 inches between frame rails and a big block Chevy engine. There is a universal mounting kit offered that would be a good start for fabrication.
