Is there a bolt-on AC Delco (GM) alternator for a 1972-74 CJ-5 with the 258
The GM alternators are much cheaper, and are widely available and don't
require a separate voltage regulator.
Searches done on this news groups and other sites indicate that certain GM
alternators are "bolt-in" for certain jeeps but my trip to the auto parts
store seems to indicate that I will have to modify the mounts. I don't mind
adapting the wiring but would prefer not to fabricate a new bracket.
While inthe junkyard check any AMC Eagles too,my 86 model Eagle has a very simple mount,sits top passengers side of engine (no ac)
AC equipped Eagles had a funky altanator setup below AC compressor,least my old 80 did
