Manta A Alternator Options


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Does anyone have suggestions for something that will give a bit of extra electrical juice?

The easiest and cheapest to sourcing option for me is the 60A out of a Astra mk2 (Kadett E).

How easily would that go into a standard A?

The wiring was updated and uprated a little while ago so I'm not worried about the extra current frying anything.

Not sure if the Astra alternator will fit, if it does go on the bracket the pully might not be inline.

the best answer is the alternator off a twelve valve straight six, (senator,carlton etc) they are 95 amp, you will need the mounting bracket as well and tensioner, this bolts onto a manta CIH engine and is a much superior design.

Thanks for the reccomendations.

Probably should have said I'm in South Africa...

Rekords/Carltons and Senators are really difficult to find parts for (ie Alternator).

They do pop up every now and then, but like I said, astra bits I can find at my local breakers, whereas I'd have to go to Cape Town to search for rekords etc.
