Which Kubota Alternator??

Looking for a lightweight Denso/Kubota alternator. Not much second hand on eBay atm, so looking like it might need to be new. It's going on a Zetec blacktop, and I already have an old style Raceline alternator bracket like this



I've noticed 2 on eBay from the sale seller. 1 is a 2 pin and 1 is a 3 pin. Can someone please confirm they are the correct type alternators, whether they will fit the bracket I have, and if I need a 2 or 3 pin (I'm hopeless with electrics)?

I second starterman, it will come with the correct ribbed pulley etc on my silvertop i just needed to space it out a bit to line up with the bottom pulley, but my bracket is different, so yours may fit straight on

If you want to measure the distance between the lugs on your bracket I'm sure I can find you an alternative if you want.

You can have 2 or 3 pin and I have no idea if it will fit that bracket. I've no idea what size the bracket is. It will be a Denso copy unit as they all are. No idea how much it weighs, because there is nothing smaller or lighter so weight doesn't really matter.

The 2 pin is ignition and light feed

The 3 pin comes in Dummy, Ignition and light or Sense, Ignition and light, or com, ignition and light or Phase, ignition and light.

The choice is yours but choose the 2 pin, its easier to wire.

U2U me your address and email address and I'll send an invoice. Obviously I won't be able to send the unit until Monday, but I will send it by TNT.

What pulley would you like fitted?
