Default Parts needed to relocate alternator?

What parts do I need to round up to relocate the alternator down by the frame?

Can it go down where the AC compressor used to be? Do I need a different front cover setup?

I am having a Hogan's sheet metal intake built and would like to move the alternator out of the way.

Thanks.

I think Kar Kraft used to make something, but they are long out of business.

Still doing the 'Twins' John?

You're no help... LOL!

Ideally, I would like to move it down to where I have my A/C delete idler, but I'm not sure anyone makes a bracket for this.

No, the twins are on hold because life happens. My son starts college this fall so I have to limit my modifications this year. Still have the 6-71 but now it is teflon stripped and setup to run M1 and E85. I will have Hogan put the tabs on the front of the intake so I can put my alternator in the factory location just in case I cannot get it relocated. Then I can look into moving it in the future. I don't want to get stuck with not being able use the car because I can't mount the alternator and have to send it back to get it modified. I sent them my complete intake setup to use as a template. Dan at FLP will be doing the engine swap and rebuild with the new cams, short block (MMR 1500 this time).

Pics when this comes together.

Cliff notes:

I am still looking for a bracket to move the alternator, either side down low, and use the original NA belt offset.

I can pretty much guarantee you wont be able to use the Marauder style alternator anymore.

I think you are gonna have to make a bracket!

I've been going nuts trying to find where I saw the bracke I mentioned in my earlier post. It was on one of the modular forums I frequent but I cant find exactly where. It was simular to this but a lot less cash. I PM'ed the owner and had him check if it could go where the AC lives and he said the bolts do match up.

Maybe I'll stumble across it soon.

If you have the current issue of MM&FF with the White GT500 Cobra on the cover, check the pictures of the cobra where they show the front suspension from the bottom. You can see the alternator sitting where the A/C compressor should be. Do all 5.4 DOHC blocks have the alternator in this position? If so, is there a special alternator or just a bracket that it bolts to?
