Ext Alternator + SCC

Anyone on the forum seen pictures of or know someone that has done an external alternator top center of the engine just forward of and including a Single Carb Install? I saw pics of one awhile back but can’t find it anywhere.

I don't recall ever having seen that configuration.

Saw a thread, but do not know where. The alternator was mounted in the middle of the engine, the heat shield was removed, and the crank was used like the other external alt mods out there. No reason why it would not work as long as there is room to install the alternator. Doing an SCC as well could free up some room in that area as well. Be an interesting combination. Cheers

Never owning a 1200, isn't the radiator fan motor in the way?

Rad fan shroud and blade(s) need to be modified/moved out of the way no matter where the alternator is installed. Installing the alternator in the middle may negate the need to modify the rad fan shroud and blade(s), but the rad will have to be moved out to clear the crank pulley.

If included with a SCC setup, I would think that the intake manifold could be designed to work around the alternator. Fit the alternator temporarily as it would be at finish, and design the intake manifold around it.

May want to look into ducting air into the alternator area for cooling.

Most alternators are installed on the left side because that was where it all began. I looked at how an alternator can be installed on the right side but have air hoses in the way, so left side it is.

Look forward to hearing about the progress. Cheers
