I have a vintage looking generator style single wire alternator, but I am not sure I will use it. I plan to tackle that project once the engine is set in the chassis. The amount of space available may have an impact on what will be used.Slight topic change since I’m on the downhill slope of my engine rebuild. What alternator were you planning on using? I’ve recently learned about ‘mini alternators’ that apparently are used in hot rods and more modern cars. I’m not going for a completely authentic look with my engine, so I’m definitely looking into it as an option. Any knowledge of what minimum amperage is needed for the D Type?
