Re: [T3] Type I Bosch Alternator

For the record, I am using a Nippon-Denso from a forklift.  My web site has my
write-up of the conversion I did and it also has info for the RX-7.

Because of the engine configuration it's been difficult to bolt-on an
alternator to our cars.  But as I and several others have proven, with a
little bit of work (and some sort of metal cutting tool :-) ) it's not too
difficult to have our cars alternator charged AND they WILL last!

BTW, your Squareback and drivetrain looks Bee-Ewe-Tee-Full!  Powdercoating or
