There are a few options available to you. My 4.2 diesel had a 60amp alternator which I felt was not strong enough to charge a huge main and a 105A/H second battery, so when my alternator konked out I bought a new 90A/H alternator from an auto electrical shop. The price was much cheaper than from Nissan, even though it was a bigger more powerful alternator. It also has the voltage regulator outside the alternator and takes a common standard Bosch voltage regulator too, which is great should I need to buy a spare one when in far away places.

Take the alternator to a auto electrical shop so they an match the mounting legs position. I know on the diesel the legs are at 12 o' clock - 6 o' clock. Check the pulley set up ( flat vs "V" belt ) and diameter.

Another alternative is to fit a big Delco Alternator, Christoslang ( Chuck Norris ) did this mod to his 4.2 diesel..... Eskom now asks him for power.....hahaha. There is a thread on this modification he did somewhere on this forum.

The principals should be the same irrespective of petrol or diesel models

Thinus
Check met Grootseun. Hy het nog my altenator, maar dit sal herstel moet word. As jy dit by hom kan kry kan ek reel dat dit herstel word.
