Triumph TR6 - Tired Lucas Alternator
|What's the most common (upgrade) replacement out there these days that will be a simple swap without any modifications to the existing wiring, brackets, belts, pully system, ect...|
Also depends on year of car
Do a search on Bosch and Alt.
Rod's done the changeover, prolly others too.
I've got the GM in mine . Bigger but more work ,if I recall.

|Paul's is a great site for that. I think he over paid the alternator though.|
Yikes... 95 amp... Looks like they offer 55,65,75 and 95 amp options. I think I am currently at 34 amps. Any Idea on how high to go? They also go up in price along with the amps... I now have an electric fuel pump and the Lucas style additional driving lights drawing power...
|The Bosch 55 is plenty for what you got. |
If your running heated seats and computers, than you might want the big boy
|Sounds good Don... Thank you...|
|As it turns out the 75 amp unit is priced the same as the 55 so I went with the 75. If anyone goes the BNR route be sure to let them know what size pully you are running. They for some reason by default have the 3/8" pulley so in my case I simply requested the pulley for the 1/2" belt and they set it up with no charge...|
Thought that was a Railroad
|The company is BNR parts out of Van Nuys, CA..|
However, I felt I got railroaded a bit on the price...
