Guess I didn't post this right the first time. Does anyone know where to buy the chevy mini one wire alternator other than DB Electric? They want nearly as much to ship it to Canada as they want for the alternator. thanks in advance glnewbe

I presume you are wanting to do the Poorboy conversion.

This article discusses it but I did not see where he mentions his source.

This one does too, has better pictures. I should think you could find what you want in just about any good starter/alternator repair shop.

This guy repairs them and probably has extras to sell.

Follow this thread for several ideas on what has been used.

Don Pigott sells them. I don't remember if he is a member of the forum here, someone else might know.

Any parts store has what Don shows in his conversion. Look at 89-93 Geo Metro, now what you have to be careful of is the 89-90 uses a Nippondenso alternator and a 91-93 is a Mitsubishi alternator.Both will work but you will find the Nippondenso is a smaller case size and 2 lbs lighter. There was less modification to the tupperware by using the smaller size.They both are 55 amp so you do not loose anything one way or the other.

Ditto on the the parts store and for a few dollars more you can purchase a lifetime warrenty.I bought mine at O'REILEYS.
