More Powerful Alternater On Xf

HI ALL
i need a more powerfull alternator for my XF FALCON. I curently have the standard alternator with a smaller pulley on it, but it still dosent do the job.
Is there another more powerful alternator out there that will bolt straight on in it's place without have to go changing brackets.

thanks

Re: More Powerful Alternater On Xf

I have a Bosch Universal 85 A alternator on my 351. Same as a TS Magna 4 cylinder. I think they fit all Fords with a spacer (supplied) and if you take the spacer out, all Holdens, they are universal, part number BXU85

1978 XC Fairmont GXL, Emerald green, Jade Int. 351C, 750 VAC, C10, 9" LSD
Air, steer, power windows................

Take your alt to a auto elec and have him change the delta(I think) wiring
That will make it 110amp. I did this on my XF years ago

This is good but doesn't allow it to operate effectively at lower rpm, and they dont last as long. They tend to burn out. Use EF onward alternator, alternatively, EA Fairmont use a 85A Bosch type which bolts straight on. Hope it helps.

Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject...

u-k1(r)14v40a22 - no air
u-k1(r)14v50a22 - air
u-k1(r)14v60a22 - efi

These part numbers are usually stamped on the top of the alternator

Another way of telling is the width of the stator. Less amps = thinner
