completely diff alternators,
i had a 65amp v8 alt so i just got that recoed
as far as im aware the ea needs a diff reg on the back to be compatible

Re: ea alternator onto clevo

I have a BOSCH 85A universal (BXU85A) which is the same as on my Dad's 4 cylinder Magna. Bolted up to Cleveland OK with supplied spacer. Just had to grind upper bracket a little and run a shorter belt. A plug had to be soldered onto the wiring harness as well. Leave the spacer off and it fits a Holden (I think) that's why they call it universal.
