I have one here in Georgia and a alternator frame to convert any chevy alternator. I also have the gasket for the adaptor.

Bill and I are in communications of all his upgrade needs. Since I am going through new wiring on the Greenbrier engine, I am able to guide him in simplest way to get what he wants, an internally regulatated alternator. Yea, oil filler/alternator adaptor & gasket, proper alternator (frame and fan), rear support, wiring change to remove regulator, wiring change for internally regulated alternator.

Did I miss anything?

Bill has asked me to assist in making up a kit to install the internally regulated alternator on his early Monza.

Since I am doing the wiring for my Greenbrier at this time, it is just as easy to make up wires for a second installation.

I have his kit about 80% complete. It should be complete with all needed parts late next week.

For those that are interested, this modification will remove the VR and the wires that went to the generator. He will use the Schematic below for future troubleshooting.

A kit to accomplish installing an internally regulated alternator is complete, except for an alternator.

Wiring inventory list is complete.

Vehicle Modification Instructions have been typed up to go with kit.

Kit will ship when alternator is received from California Corvairs,

My 63, the frankenvair, (66-67 engine) has a generator mounted on an alternator bracket. I have a generator bracket, should I change it out? Thanks

Either install the generator adaptor with its rear support brace or install a internally regulated alternator. Either way will make it right. It is a wonder you aren't wearing or throwing belts.

See my thread on the internally regulated alternator.

I do have the rear brace on but yeah I was throwing belts. Mostly I think because I had it on too tight, which I have learned is not right. I resisted changing out the bracket until I realized it is only the top section and not the whole front case of the engine. I have the engine out now and will do the swap. Do I still use the rear brace. I think I would.

Generator rear brace needs to be installed also. You risk cracking the adaptor or generator front frame. Check installation parts required for the generator by researching the parts manual.

Our kits are listed here - still available

The question of the rear brace comes up from time to tiem. It's very much needed in generator applications because the generator weighs a tone and hangs out almost a foot - I've found (from 800,000 plus miles of Corvair use) that they are not necessary on alternators - stock or hi-output.

Back to the statement that GM would never spend a dime that they didn't have to to build any part for any model of automobile. If it wasn't needed, the support brace would have been gone at the introduction of the new alternator instead of being redesigned to fit the new alternator.

It is now up to each owner to make their own decision whether to install or not.

A complete kit to install an internally regulated alternator onto Bill's 64 Monza has been assembled and shipped to him. He has received it and is happy with the kit and instructions.

Kit included alternator, wiring, junction blocks and locally manufactured rear support brace with spacer. Alternator/oil filter adapter with gasket also part of kit.

He will be installing it in April.

This was a one time help out to a fellow Vair owner.

I have but one of oil filter/alternator adapters left to help out with, if needed. It came off the pitiful 140 engine I picked up, but the adapter is good. All of the adaptors and alternator front frames/fans I had are now owned by CA Corvairs.

Wiring package for an EM/FC is real simple. Anyone wanting the list can PM me and send me an email to get the list.

Wiring wise it is even simpler on a LM to put an IR alternator on board using the M&H Electrical Fabricators Alternator Conversion Kit.

The rear support is the issue to get it made right with along with a spacer. If you don't want to trust to luck and want the GM required brace on the alternator.

Rick and I will be setting up his 65 4 door with the IR alternator later this year.
