Hey Pete, when I was doing my wiring Andrew put me onto the marine places, Whitworth marine in east bris, may be theres others around, but once I went there I never went anywhere else, their stuff is all really good, most of their cables are already tinned, small and large, and buy whatever length and gauge you want, and even all their connectors and switches and stuff are better quality. I ended up pulling some stuff out I'd already done and changing to their stuff, I suppose when you think about it marine stuff needs to be better quality, your car breaks down from an electrical fault so you pull over to the side of the road, your boat breaks down from a faulty electrical component and you're never heard from again!

Thanks Darryl,will call them . do they sell fusible links? , mine got toasted back in the 90s and havn't been able to scource one.
i guess they would be available in diff gauge to suit higher amps.
cheers Peter

I get my auto cable from Ashdown-Ingrams. Don't know if they sell by the meter though.
I dont have a fusible link. I'd recommend installing a manually resettable circuit breaker instead.

I ditched the fusible link and went with a resettable circuit breaker as Ace recommends. They're similar to a fusible link in the way that they don't trip on a minor spike, only if something actually goes wrong, and yes the marine joint had plenty of them in different amperages.

Do you remember what the guts were out out by chance?


Not at all, sorry. I think you just need to look for the same style alt but with a much wider band that runs around the body, that's how you tell it's a higher amp unit.

Thanks Darryl, ACE, for info this morn. finally bolted the alternator on this afternoon after i measured, cut, lengthened, welded,grinded,twisted ,filed, cussed, then it bolted on easily.
the power terminal on the back rests on the cyl head, had to buy a 60mm longer belt and raise it up higher than i would like?
Probably fit a std j head but not an edelbrock. anyways all good for Redcliffe tomorrow .

Looks good Pete, and looks like the air will be able to get through it there with a bit of space around it.

Is anything ever a bolt in??? :o


Looks like my alt sits out a bit further than yours Peter, we must have different depth pulleys.
