zetec alternator mounting

Idea for mounting the alternator on blacktop engine. I really do not want to pay for the kits around, the build cost is mounting up too quickly. So I would appreciate anybody's DIY solution.

cheers

Its not a big job.

pick an alternator and some 6mm plate. Stick a couple of lugs on it and wedge it under the inlet.

Ive done four home made ones and just use what ever is cheap at the time with a multi v pulley.

I think this one was a R5

First attempt for the 1.8 silvertop....




Have you got the air con pump bracket off the blacktop? I simply modified mine to make a slimmer bracket for the alternator.





Hope that inspires you, cost me nought but a bit time and a new belt

My attempt! In the end wanted to use my pinto alt




In this picture it shows the adjuster which is why I wanted the concave/convex washers the other day (still do m8), because the angle changes of the threaded rod when its wound in and out, hence why the washer is a better solution but I'm buggered if I'm paying 13 for a pair of washers!

Very clever mate, didn't even think of using the alt as an idler pulley.

Nice work!

Rich
