GM Delco-Remy Alternator Installation
The book describes other mounting methods which can use the "straight
across" lugs (tensioner lug at 12 o'clock).
In this picture, it is apparent that the alternator sits up fairly high, just under the right side radiator hose, thermostat housing, and crossover pipe fitting. For this reason, a relatively small GM alternator is needed -- a CS130 or an SI12. The larger SI15/17 cannot be installed this way without making an adapter plate to relocate the air pump mounting bracket lower on the side of the engine.
What's not as apparent in this picture is the large gaping space under this alternator where the Lucas alternator originally mounted.
You can just make out the back end of the 16" GM electric fan at the
right, which was installed in place of the original belt-driven fan --
see ElecFan.html. With these two
changes, the front end of the V12 went from four V-belts to two.
