For those that don't want to cut and solder wires ---

The M&H kit includes BOTH a connector for the voltage regulator plug AND a pigtail harness to adapt the stock 10DN alternator plug to the 10SI alternator socket.

See [corvaircenter.com]

You'll also need to modify the rear support bracket. Didn't someone hear make a 10SI bracket for sale?

Need some additional help/advice, please.

First, thank you to everyone for the very helpful information. I ordered and received the Hi Output alternator and the M&H adapter kit, however I hit a slight snafu when I went to install the "new" Hi Output unit yesterday.

The hole on the left side of the alternator where the vertical bracket is supposed to attach is not in the same place as on my original alternator, making it impossible for the vertical bracket to attach. It was suggested that this vertical bracket is not necessarily needed. Thoughts?

There is a second issue also. The cooling fan on the new alternator looks like it's on backwards on my new alternator. It was also suggested to me that this should not be an issue and I shouldn't be concerned. I'm a bit confused because With all the research and reading on the forums I've done regarding the installation of new/Hi Output alternators (rebuilt or otherwise), one of my key takeaways was that the fan should be installed like it is in my original alternator. Now, it is suggested that it's ok to leave it as is. Thoughts on this also? Is what I'm being told accurate?

I'm a bit confused at this point confused smiley

I've included pics help you to see what I'm seeing. The Alternator on the left in the picture is the new Hi-Output alternator.

Correction, In the picture of the alternators, the one on the right is the "new" Hi-Output alternator.

Swap the fan/pulley. Should be easy.

As has been noted elsewhere in this thread.

You need to transfer the pulley / fan from the Corvair alternator to the new alternator.

You need to modify the bracket to fit the new alternator.

Yes, you should use the bracket.

On a side note, I would like to install a alternator lock out switch on throttle wide open. Has this been talked about here before? With the external regulator it should be easy, if it's internally regulated is there an easy way to do it? Sorry Hope i'm not high jacking this thread to much. thanks!

Thanks David! That's what I'll do.

You need the correct fan on the left installed. The stock rear bracket will not line up. I either cut and elongate the stock bracket with a piece of 1/8 flat bar and a welder or I make a new longer bracket with 1/8 steel flat bar.

That makes sense. You don't happen to have one of those brackets already made and laying around with my name on it do you? smiling smiley

I bought a 110 amp alternator for a Chevy on ebay and had the front fan from a Corvair alternator transferrd onto it. I've never had a problem with it. It actually measured 108 amps when the shop transferred the bracket. 108 amps is more than you'll ever need but it was a lot cheaper than buying a Corvair altenator from Clarks.

Hope this helps
