hi guys.

just wondering how i can make the whole ef/el amternator fit the ed brackets because im putting in thermo fans and need a bigger alternator and want to keep the 3 belt set up.

id like to know if im able to mount the whole el housing on the eb/ed brackets and just change the pulley to a ed pulley so itll work off the 3 belt system.

can someone please do a step by step detailed guide on mounting the ef/el/au alternator on the ed fairmont brakets and just changing the pulley on the el one to ed so itll work off the 3 belt setup.

can someone please do a step by step detailed guide on taking the el alternator internals, and transferring it to the ed housing to use the ed pulley so itll work off the 3 belt setup.

HA HA HA love the reply Private9!


JETEB6, Here's what i'm working on atm for my EB.

Myself, i'm working out if i can drill a EF alternator's top bolt hole out & fit a thread insert into the hole, then just change the pulley & mount just like the earlier alternator.

First looks, it looks like it will work, but i need to measure it up.

Cheers

I know it's grave digging, but i thought this would be good in case someone searches & finds this thread on the upgrade.

I ended up Drilling the EF Alternators top bolt hole & fit a M10 ( or M12 i can't remember, been a while ) thread insert into the thread i tapped, using some locktite to keep the thread insert in there, and broke the tab off like the directions in the kit say to.

I didn't get time to change the pulley on the alternator. I did grind the mounting bracket bottom edge down a bit, and also the casing of the alternator. I then used the original EB bolts & adjuster nut to install the alternator. Fit with a new standard EB Alternator belt, it adjusts as per factory & works a treat. I've been running it for ages now without any issues.
