105A drop-in replacement alternator for Opel 1900 motors
I recently traded a '91 b230ft to Eric for an updated, higher output alternator for my 1974 Opel Manta as the stock 55A unit (for AC'd cars, otherwise it would have been a whopping 35A) was getting ready to "give up the ghost". I've had a 150A MechMan alternator installed in my 745t for 3 years now and couldn't be happier with it's quality, performance or ease of installation and the same rings true with this new unit for my Opel.
This unit installed in less than an hour, using all stock parts except on the tensioner where a longer bolt is required (I used an intake mani stud from a b230) and the fan belt needed to be shortened from the stock 7355 to a 7350.

Might not be too interesting, but it is a testament to the ability, quality and variety that Eric and the whole MechMan crew supply for even the most obscure applications.

Thanks Eric!

Thanks for the pics Steve. We build for just about everything here and it's always fun to build something new for a friend.

I know the meaning of life.
