I just bought my first Jeep this last summer and have done some work on it. It is a 1960 CJ-5 willys and has a few problems. I just rebiult the carb. and my suspension is broken in the back so i cant take it offroading anywhere without the tire grinding up into my wheel well. Anyways back to my subject.... The generator in it is bad, and a guy that is apprenticing me in mechanics has a ford 1980 F-150 (not sure if that is relivent or not) alternator that puts out about 60 amps...I think my is suppost to put out 40, but whith just the engine running it barley puts out enough amps to keep the battery charged, if i turn on the lights i loose battery power same with the heater....but i was wondering if it would work if i did convert to that alternator, and if you guys had a diagram for it??? I am not sure what my boss said exactly I forgot, but he says he needs some kind of diagram to be sure everything will work right or something like that. I am sort of illiturate to this stuff... but if i could get some help that would be great. Thanks
