    So I have my own alternator questions. Is this alternator correct for my new Bee? I am gonna need a new one and I was wondering if I should send this one out for rebuild or just replace it. Sorry for the crappy pic, but I am at work and cant take a beter one right now. So I will describe it. It has a dual pulley and single field.

    The A12 guys could tell you about the pulley. If you get the part # and date I can give you that! :beep: If its original don't turn it in as a core :popcorn:

    Hey Mac, thanks for the info. The question I have is the double pulley correct? Which one do you run?

    my car, not being a true A-12 car, i run the single. i think that a double would be for cars with a/c.

    I don't know about A12s but Hemis had double a pulley single belt. They were after a certain diameter :cents:

    I just had mine rebuilt and I think it's the same as yours from the look and it is single field. The shop didn't have any single field alternators since it's a pretty old style so they rebuilt mine. Everyone has their own way of doing things but I prefer to have my electrical stuff rebuilt, that way I know it's what came off the car and I believe that local shops do a better job rebuilding stuff than a factory in Malasia or wherever.

    I know A/C cars have doubles, but I remembered hearing Hemi cars had doubles and I would hate to assume that this ones wrong. I think you told me about the Hemi alternator.

    Can't see past the avatar... was there a motor pictured in that post? I didn't see anything motor-like.
