Hi shadowbachsir, Unless you are adding accessories to the automobile it's not necessarily required, but often recommended by enthusiasts. Hope this helps!


Looks like there aren't many mechanics on here.. just modifiers! I did this on my '62. You need to go to http://www.yearone.com or your favorite aftermarket shop like http://www.jegs.com and look up a "1-wire alternator". The hardest part of this swap is the mounting bracket. My 1968's generator has the same housing as a alternator. I bought the adapter for the wiring from Year One along with the 1-wire alternator. EASY swap. Email me if you have further questions. Well worth doing as Generators don't charge at idle most of the time and alternators do.

hay dvigano,we now have a real know it all on here,mabey he can take the pressure off us wanna be.last time i checked i was 2nd for knowlage,how about you.
