Alternator mounting

Michael Scholtz

Recommended Posts

I am fitting a 20v toyota motor to my birkin.

I have some concern about if the alternator is going to clear the steering shaft.

I am also considering an electric waterpump That would mean that if I could find a way to mount the alternator elsewhere I would not need any belt on the front.


Is this a silly idea?

Has anyone done this or know of someone who does?

Michael, I have a LHD Kseries with a drysump pump fitted on the right hand side, No room for the altenator on the left side due to the steering column and the tilt of the motor. I mounted the altenator off the front of the motor, running backwards. Works fine. Tom
