Would I be able to change location of alternator. Right not it s on carb side and a bitch to remove. I had to remove radiator to get it out. Seems like there’s a ton of room on other side. Will the same brackets sent with these alternators fit this option? Please email me at elitedevinc@aol.com

Thank you, yes, we have used that alternator on the right side, but we typically use others just due to better fit. Several right hand options available:

Self regulated:

Lower cost (requires oem regulator):

All these look,work, and fit great, with properly machined components. All these are complete mounting kits with alternator included.
