since I have completed tranny tear down number 5 , I've struck off on a little project.

I've relocated my battery down onto the frame. Notice my alternator is a double pully gm type. What can I do with the open flat area that WAS where the battery mounted ?

Looks like I can mount another alternator on that plate.Why would I want to do that?

More pictures this weekend. Same Willys time,same Willys channel

be careful with mounting that alternator backwards. You may get some unwanted electrical issues with it turning backwards.

If rotating backwards creates a reverse polarity, then your vehicle's whole electrical system would be shorted out...

I'm not sure if it would be a problem, but its worth checking out.

Also, the fan wouldn't be as effective with it rotating backwards...

ding ding ding...we have a weiner!

Rob,to be truthfull,the other alternator is the one that is spinning backwards as to how the cooling fins are and such.I've had no issues with this.The welder itself won't power anything other than what it is designed for.

not very happy with the "piece of wood" belt adjuster but it works for right now till I think of something else to do. It does a right fair job of burning a rod.I hope we have to use it next weekend .

Is that OEM to have a grease gun under the hood? Pretty handy either way.

the ww2 jeeps did mounted to the underside of the hood. I'm not sure of the M38s tho. I'll grease a squeek in a heartbeat.
