Does any one know of a mount and a 6 volt alternator set up for a 1915 T?
Vendors have them, Langs kit # is 5119ALTE. cost is $279.00
Sorry, I double checked that, it's 12v, the later ones are 6v.
Richard maybe a little more info is needed;
What are you needing to use an alternator for?
I have a starter, distributer and lights so I need to keep the old 6 volt battery charged
The 15 does not have a spot for the regular gear driven generator so it has to be mounted in other ways and belt driven.
I just googled info on a 6v alt, 1 wire and neg ground, they seem to be easily available in the USA and not to dear as well $120/30 range.
Yes most of us understand or assume that it does not have a place to mount a gen/alt. I ask because a good charged battery should take care of most needs for a good amount of time without recharging, unless you drive a lot with your head lights on. If your T is taking it's time to start using the starter might be time to do some troubleshooting. Have you rebuilt the engine (tight) or checked the draw of the starter, done a tune up?
You might call Lang's or Chaffins
( http://www.chaffinsgarage.com/orderinf.htm ) and see what they might suggest.
If you're going to install a non-historical electrical system, you might as well go with 12-volts, rather than 6-volts, because it will give you brighter lights and you'll be able to power things like a GPS and electric tire pump. -The vendors sell a belt-driven alternator kit that includes a bracket which fastens to the engine's head. -You can find one here:
Does your magneto work? If so, just build a charging circuit to charge the battery. It is easy to do. If you have a distributor, you could put your charging circuit inside the empty coil box. That way you don't spoil that original engine appearance.
