Subject: Re: [AmelYachtOwners] Mounting of the 175 amp alternator on a Yanmar
I am using the same setup that was on my old Yanmar. I just had to take off the serpentine belt and change the pulleys to accommodate a V belt. Since the alternator that came with the new engine was not an isolated ground and I did not want to use it as I have a spare from the old engine.
I also swapped the senders from the old engine to the new engine. Amazingly when I plugged in the harnesses, it all worked.
In case you need a new tensioning bracket for this alternator and engine, I found that the Balmar Belt Buddy w/Universal Adjustment Arm fits and works fine. I just had to "invert" it and move the tensioning hardware to the other side of the bracket. I bought mine on amazon but all major ships chandlers sell it.
