Quick Alternator Question

I wanna order a set of U/D pulleys. I'm wondering what type of alternator I should go with if I don't use the radio and rarely use the AC.

Your stock alternator may serve if you don't use many electrical components.
Otherwise a 3G conversion alternator (94-95 Mustang alternator) would be your best bet.


IMO the UD pulleys are not really worth the cost or effort of installing them.
You'd probably free up more power installing the 3G alternator and converting to an electric fan and water pump.

Re: Quick Alternator Question

Thanks man, they do seem to be a bit of a hassle for what they're worth. So would a 95 amp be good enough if I upgrade the water pump and get an electric fan?

That might carry them ok, but it wouldn't leave much room for ignition or anything else you might add.

Are their more powerful amps than that then? There has to be a way to get electric fans/pump/ingnition and a radio; no?

I just bought 150 amp rebuilt off eBay for 100$.somtimes the 3g conversion requires cutting a small piece of the alt bracket but very minor and it will bolt right up.they also make even bigger 200+ amp.

There you go, that's a heck of a deal!
