        That takes care of the wiring part, but what about the alternator itself and mounting it? Will it bolt into the stock small-frame-alt bracket or are any modifications needed?

          sorry i guess i forgot that part.

          the alt. fits in the small bracket. and will bolt up to the block just fine...only problem I had which may have been a fluke was the bottom of the alternator slips into a groove on the block and the bolt goes through the block, the alternator, then the block again...i had to shave the alternator mounting a was a hair too wide to go into the groove. other than that it was smooth sailing. the conversion kit came with instructions.

          and you must have a stock or small pulley. the alt sits higher in the bracket and the belt is tough to get on. make sure to check the adjustment bolt for tension after driving it a bit...mine got really loose. the bigger alt. puts more stress on the belt and the adj. bolt and moves a little.

          take pix if you do this swap and let us know how it went.
