Alternator upgrade on PSC37 with 5432
Has anyone put a bigger alternator on the Universal M40/5432 engine? I was thinking in the 100A range (small frame).
There are alternators that would fit, but I'm worried that the drive belt is too thin. The Balmar site recommends a minimum of 1/2 inch.
Upgrading to a 1/2 belt would require changing the pulleys on the crankshaft and the water pump. Anyone done this or know of a source for the parts?
