What's in the Box

Info

If you like traditional looks and reliable, modern performance, you’ll love this cool Flathead alternator. It has the look of an original generator, but is really a 6-volt, positive-ground alternator that produces 60 amps at idle and 75 amps going down the road. This 1-wire alternator is designed to fit 1949-1953 Ford & Mercury Cars and 1948-1953 Ford Trucks with Flathead V8s and features a simple one-wire hookup.

We offer it in black painted or polished aluminum, and both include stock-appearing mounting brackets (the stock fan carrier bolts to that bracket) and pulleys that accept wide 5/8” belts.

  • Easy one-wire hookup
  • 5/8" wide belt pulley included
  • If using 3/8" wide belt, order pulley # 91067178
  • Uses stock-appearing bracket and fan carrier bolts

Fantastic product

October 07, 2016
Great product, easy to install. The only con is that it comes with a 5/8" pulley so we mist purchase a second pulley if we have a 3/8 or 1/2 . Should be able to order with correct pulley and not have to remove and discard the 5/8
Yes, I recommend this product.

I already purchased this Alternator. I would like to install two small studs on the case to connect the FIELD and Arm leads which are no longer used. Make it look like a correct generator. How do i do this without harming the Alternator??

If you are going to drill thru the case we would recommend disassembling the alternator before hand to eliminate particles getting into the internals. If just drilling partway in then tape off the cooling slots and openings to keep inside clean.

Altenater Details Will this bolt up without any modifications? I have an original truck and do not want to alter anything to make it fit. Does it include everything i need to bolt up ? Can i use existing belt ? What would i need to do to get original amp guage to work with this altenater or will it render guage useless? Thanks for your help. This is a 6 volt positive ground system using a generater at this time

This Powergen should be a direct bolt on for your 52 Ford pickup and works fine as it comes for positive ground. It will eliminate your regulator completely and will simply be one wire to the starter battery side or direct to the battery. Your fan carrier will bolt directly to the bracket and the only issue is your amp gauge which would normally hook to the regulator. It will take some rewiring due to this being a one wire alternator.

No this will not work as a negative ground. This is for 6 volt positive ground systems only.
