Volkswagen Alternator. (AL82NC)
60 Amp, For All 1300-1600 Engines.

This particular Chinese alternator
is getting very good feedback/reviews.
This alternator presents a substantial savings in a frequently unavailable
Bosch alternator. Alternator is ready to install (no core charge.)
Six Month Mfr. Warranty.

VW Beetle and Super Beetle 1967-79
VW Karmann Ghia 1967-74

Retrofitting for this alternator: May have to do a minor grind
on the alternator housing so that alternator clears the carb
(grind is minor and alternator touch up is only needed for certain carbs)
A good retrofit alternator with an internal regulator.
Will retrofit all stock generators except 25/36 hp 1200 cc engines.
