To save time I bought a kit. No reason to do that if you have any mechanical resources and understanding.
The bracket you need. Scroll down to the blueprint for the bracket if you are able to make it.
I didn't do the research because I wanted to get it running. When I got the kit, it was basically an alternator I had laying around. Read this and do your own homework to decide if it suits you.
The pulley to accommodate the fat belt I can't help you with.
: Here is someone that converts the original
: generators to alternators for that factory
: look. These aren't cheap. Usually just under

: requires no bracket/mounting changes which
: ensures sturdyness.

: Here's that link to the Alt. conversion.
: always been a "Run with what ya
: brung" kind of guy. Anything wrong
: with your generator? I take mine to a place
: in town and get them freshened up for half
: the price of a conversion and the idiot
