Default 100 amp alternator.

Killed the bearings in my factory 50A alternator.

Fortunately, Mitsubishi Electric makes a crap ton of alternators. Got a 100A one from a 6 cyl EF Falcon Ute.

You have to bore the pulley and spacer out from 15-17mm and fiddle with the alignment a little with washers to shim the thing in line with the other pulleys. Also it needs a shorter belt. When I get the correct size tomorrow, I will post it.

Also, if you do this, upgrade the wire that runs from the positive on the alternator to the battery. Preferably with welding cable. The factory one is not heavy gauge enough for 100A.

Now I can go back to having 100/130w headlights with my 130w spots and not have the battery go flat while I drive.

Blutak, cos thats all that's holding her together. ..
Now she has 485'000km, same everything with a 2.5' pipe, straight thru muffler and cat delete. Also a set of leaf springs from a 96 triton that gave me a $100 2 inch lift.

Phone died and I lost the pics. Doesn't matter though, it's an easy fit and it's any 6cyl Falcon alternator from EA to EF.

The only difficulty is that the pulley and spacer from the Paj alternator needs to be machined out from 15-17mm. I did it with a tapered reamer and a Dremel. Unless you are really experienced at bodging crap together, I'd recommend getting a shop to machine it for you on a lathe.

The only other drama is belt alignment. The holes on the alternator are M10 and the mount on the timing cover is M8. You need to use reducing bushes, similar to a roll pin, to get the thing mounted straight. The mounts on the alternator are spaced wider apart than on the original but you can use the spacers to compensate if you get nice long ones and cut them to size.

It is a bit of a fiddle but well worth it.
