what size is my alternator

Postby Pilks » 01 Mar 2009, 19:55

Hello all
Im trying to establish what size my alternator is on my air cooled 2ltr is. I believe the alternator is the orginal. in my haynes manuel they say there was two sizes 40 and 60amp.

Any ideas.
Next question if required is there an alternative that could be fitted without modification that is bigger than 60 amp.

Cheers
Dave

Yours is most likely the 60 amp alternator.

Try this link for an idea:- http://volksweb.relitech.com/90alt.htm

you can always add a second one! I have seen an Aircooled with 2 alternators, the second one powered a small arc welding rig.

all depends how good your fabrication skills are!
