Wow. Thanks for the picture. A couple of questions on this set up.

1) Is the regulator on the back of the 3G alternator? That is, can I elliminate the one on the fender apron with this set up?

2)Is the extended lower mount compatible with a passenger side lower radiator hose? (My current set up comes very close to the hose.)

you can use GM alts either the CS or latest series of alternators, they are 3 wire which works way better than 1 wire.
i bought a 97 camaro alt. that puts out 80 amps for 25 bucks.
go to for conversion kit.
mark at Mad is a ford guy & has all kinds of remedys for Fairlane wiring, including alt kits, headlight relay kits, etc.
