slingshot style alternator mount
Permalink  
 


Anyone in need of a brand new slingshot style alternator mount for an old Ford pickup ?

I bought the wrong one.  The two holes in the one I bought (see photo) are for course thread bolts.

I will accept a reasonable offer so that I can buy another with fine thread holes.

So, use different bolts, no?

Or, drill the holes and use bolts with nuts?

I also asked the guys at Peterborough Auto because I need to hear the voices of experience to guide me.

All three of them (with at least 2 of them owning vintage rides) suggest drilling out the slingshot holes and using my original bolts that held the generator on. I thought of that. I just didn't want to do that and find out there were wiser options.

Thank you Pugsy and Jarvis. I may be overly cautious but I am trying to do things correctly.

To be clear, the block takes fine thread bolts and the slingshot mount has course threads. Otherwise, it fits perfectly. Thanks guys.

My apologies - I was unclear. It is the 2 holes at the base of the slingshot I was unsure about, not the 2 holes at the top of the mount that hold the alternator. The 2 holes at the base line up perfectly with the block holes so I will drill out the slingshot lower mounting holes.

Thank you everyone for taking the time to assist an idiot. I may be stupid but I'm learning.
