I have a 64 1/2 Mustang and want to change the electrical system from a generator to an alternator.
Is this a major undertaking ?

The brackets to mount the alternator, and the alternator are easy to come by. The offsets are different on the pulleys, so you would want to change to the steel water pump and crank pullies. Voltage regulator is different. Charging harness is different. Since most of the time the harness is not that great, just replace with the alternator harness. The underdash stuff requires a little work, Mustang Monthly had a how to on this years ago, will try and find.

A option is a ONE WIRE alternator. They are GM that have a conversion done to them that all you have to do is put one heavy guage wire to the battery. Of course it will not look Ford and the brackets and pulleys will have to be reconfigured. It has been discussed here so do a search for ONE WIRE ALTERNATOR if you are interested. John
