All parts chrome except alternator. This alternator kit is our most popular. It's a cost effective alternator replacement package or a generator replacement kit. If you are replacing a 6 volt generator you must also get a 12V alternator pulley. (Note: to complete a 6V generator to alternator conversion you should also purchase 12 volt bulbs, a 12 volt coil, horn and flasher relay.)

Volkswagen Alternator. (AL82NC)
55 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.

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.

Unless you are powering gigantic quad speaker systems
the 55 amp alternator is all you should require. Also, off roaders
with four or fewer headlights, the 55amp alternator is all you require.
