Default generator alternator ?

We have a new powermaster alternator 6vt pos gr. in stock for a 8BA wide
belt pulley. I wonder if this would be a simple bolt on for a 337 V8. I ask
first if any one has done this cause its a project removing all those belts plus
using a step ladder its a F8...?? sam

Default Re: generator alternator ?

Wasn´t the 337 generator the style bolted to the bracket instead of a strap like 8BA...so alarmbells ring right there...if it was a direct replacement ford would probably have used the 8BA generator...just my first thought.
I would start to try and estimate the offset between mounting bracket and pulley before doing anything.

Flatheadmurre good thinking; due to brain failure to see if it has the strap or not. all I
see is a bigger generator like 40 amps. I do know the powermaster has the mouning
bracket like 59A and back, not the strap. I do know the powermaster was on a fresh
EAB (1953) for run in on the test stand, fit and worked perfectly. Knowing Henry I
should think they would use the 8ba setup. ?
