What's in the Box

Info

If you're converting your Flathead-powered car or truck to a 12-volt electrical system, you'll need a modern alternator for proper charging. This bracket mounts the ever-popular GM 1-wire alternator to a 1938-1945 Flathead Ford V8. The plain steel bracket can easily be painted to match your engine.

  • Center mounts GM SI-style alternators
  • Must use with the single 5/8" wide belt
  • Must use with the early "short" water pumps

Heavy duty

September 10, 2016
I wanted to use a smaller GM alternator with a bolt ctc spread of 5 1/4" and this bracket is for the larger 6 5/8 spread, however, I was able to cut this down and re drill the holes and it works great.
Yes, I recommend this product.

We apologize for the problems but with the 3 carb intake the center mount alternator bracket will not clear the front carburetor. You will need to use a head mount bracket and we regret that currently we do not have the correct one needed.

Can you please advise the measurement between the mounting bolt holes? My alternator measures 5 1/2" centre to centre. Will this mounting bracket be suitable for a stock 41 Flathead?

I am hoping this bracket and the Offenhauser flathead alternator pulley p/n 56010999 will work on a 1937 21 stud v-8 motor. My question is "will the pulleys line up or would I have to alter the bracket ?

It is not uncommon to have to shim the alternator rearward or remove some of the housing and move it forward for perfect belt alignment. This is not only true on conversions for the flathead V8 but also for the GM vehicles. Many times in the boxes are different lengths of spacers for certain applications and all cases are not the same.
