Powermaster Alternator V-Belt Pulley 55-75 Amp 1965-1973 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy This! I couldn't not for the life of me get my ALT light to go out on my 289 w/lamps and I had a "new" Duralast alternator from Autozone, new wiring harness, new alt harness, new voltage regulator, grounding strap, etc. The ALT light would still stay on. So I decided to buy this on recommendation and BOOM! the ALT light went out. DO NOT trust those cr***y Duralast rebuilt alternators from Autozone. They only fix what is tagged as broke. This is a brand new built alternator and it works FLAWLESSLY! I honestly wish I could give it 6 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A direct replacement except... Well they didn't include the nuts for the 3 smaller poles on the back of the unit. No problem, I'll just use the nuts of the old alternator ... but rat bastxxxs, they're metric! So you're going need some 5 mm nuts to complete the install. Also the pulley on the new unit is not as deep as my old one although the bottom of the groove is the same diameter so it should be rotating at the same RPM. Of course I'm not sure of the origin of my old unit as it was stamped 40A which should not have been on a A/C equipped Windsor powered '69 Mach 1 according to my info.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice update! Great finish, casting and cadmium plating. Fits perfectly and includes all hardware. The nicest part is the relocated BAT, FLD and STA to the top of the alternator, making it much easier to test with a multimeter for proper functionality. A quality product. Pair it up with a new solid state voltage regulator for perfect charging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit and finish I considered buying a 2nd or 3rd Gen. one-wire alternator, but got this 3-wire original type alternator. I was having a low voltage problem when I used headlamps and car was in Drive and stopped (e.g., at stoplight) and decided to replace the old re-built alt. I have a 1965 with standard accessories, e.g., A/C, power steering, automatic transmission, and saw no reason the original type alt wouldn't produce sufficient voltage. Another factor was that the 2nd and 3rd Gen. alt's are not compatible with the 1965's "ALT" dummy light on instrument panel. (Supposedly there's a way to work around this, but I never found a clear source explaining how to do so.) I have a separate Bosch voltmeter, which I highly recommend installing on a 1965 if you want to do any troubleshooting with charging issues. A tachometer is also almost essential for that purpose. (BTW, Bosch also sells a chrome "retro-style" tachometer which is easy to install and matches the style of the 1965 instrument panel -- for power just be sure to tap the wire from the tach into the red-green wire from the "ON" blade of the Ign.-switch, someplace in the six or so inches before the red-green wire plugs into the Pink resistor wire that goes to the firewall. The tach signal wire connects to the (-) post of the Ign. Coil. The tach light wire can go to the original blue-red wire three-hole plug connector hanging under the dash near the Ign.-switch; or you can plug or tap into an ACCY plug or wire from fuse box. I also painted the chrome back case flat-black to match my dash color.) After installing this 1st Gen. Powermaster (which was easy 1 hour job), replacing voltage regulator with an electronic type, and re-setting the distributor timing, I've (so far) not had a problem with low voltage. I suspect timing was biggest problem, but it was time for a new alt anyhow. I also purchased the separate wiring alt harness, which made install easy and new looking.

Do I/should I need to upgrade any wiring if I install this alternator to my stock 1966 Mustang?

Asked by: 66nag
If the alternator wiring is original it should be replaced with an original style harness since it is probably brittle.
