Thank you for the pics. it really helps.



Finally found the firefly alternator.
14684N (1-1228-01ND-2)
replaces: DENSO 100211-141 , 100211-155 , 100211-407
Lester No 14684

These were the numbers I used to find the alternator with the foot bolted on.

Found on the net I paid $55.00 but also found them as high as $150.00

Now all I need to find is the plug to fit it.

The $55.00 alternator does NOT have a removable foot.
Just rec'd it today (Feb 27 2012). Trying to figure out how to post pics of it.
Also trying to find the pics on my puter after downloading them from the camera.

If and when I figure it out I will post them.



Hope this helps

Thank you very much for this fantastic write-up, and thanks to Bob for bumping the thread!

I'm ecstatic to get my 1100A running so this vet can get back up on his horse.

Quick question... has anyone tried to install the alternator with the foot that can't be removed? The one with the removable foot *is* more expensive, but many of those that have that option only put out 45 amps as opposed to 55 amps.

For those in the US who are having trouble finding the alternator for the Pontiac Firefly in their locale, the alternator is the same as a 1986 Chevy Sprint 1.0L, which has listing in places like Advance Auto Parts and AutoZone.

I'm hesitant to spend an extra $100 or so if the foot doesn't impede anything, or worst case scenario, can be *carefully* cut off.

Great write up Todd. Here is the alt that I have as do sundance & a few others. It is a little race alt that is only 4" in Dia & only has 2 legs. Due to the offset of the ears a spacer is needed but that is ezy pezy. I am mounting my new electric fan on the outside of the rad as it is onlt 2"thick and does not interfere with the fender. Us stock fan wiring but reverse fan wiring so it is a pusher fan. Angela. http://www.rareelectrical.com/p-1733...-amp-8162.aspx

No matter how blue it may get, there is always a rainbow in the sky.
Blue is not the fastest color, but it is the prettiest.
