  • Electrical: Alternator

    Probably a dumb question but is there a modern substitute for the original Prestolite alternator on a 63 Lark Cruiser? They seem to be in the hen's tooth category.

    1979 Honda Civic 1.5L 4 cyl, just about a bolt in replacement.
    Got one a couple years ago from Rock Auto ... a Remy # 14158

      I put one of these in my (ex) '64 Daytona-it looked and worked great! Easy install too...

        It probably wouldn't work on a 65 Cruiser V-8 283? I need one.

          Any GM alternator thru about '85 should bolt right on. Try a '75 GM integral regulator unit, you can even get them in "one wire". That "one wire" just goes to the battery +. If you get the standard 3 wire one, get the 2 wire connector for it too, the 1/4" batt terminal goes to the battery+, the large wire on the connector goes to the batt + (the 1/4" batt terminal works), the small wire on the connector goes to the idiot light. I believe the wire on the "F" terminal of the regulator you no longer need goes to the light.
