Yes Don still has them for sale,
I just finished mine a couple weeks ago and emailed Don a couple times for some help
Just had a great 4 hour ride today and the alternator is working fantastic.
I'm really glad I did this conversion.

yep I installed this kit on my 86 aspy, everything works very well, putting a conversion kit on was the best thing I did

Yes, give yourself a week end and you will be glad you did it. :D Once you have completed the conversion you will never look back. I did it on my 86 Aspencade as well. Watch the video in the how to section here first. The pulley in Don’s kit is perfect.
