Default need help with C.R.A.P. bracket info...

i want to do an alternator conversion on my 1960 352 but cant figure out what C.R.A.P bracket i need... i have read that if the block has an extra hole that i need a certain one and that if it doesn't then its a different one ...im looking to install a 3 wire, 100+ amp ford alt.. what would be a good donor?..I have read like a 94 mustang or tbird...........by the way all that oil is tranny fluid from when i took the car out for a spin and the tranny hose to the radiator slipped out and made a mess....good thing i was parked when it happened and also a good reminder that when you buy a car from someone to make sure everything is bolted and tightened up right...especially if the car had been taken apart...

Your 352 does not have the hole for the alternator so you need item #92264.

I would contact C.R.A.P and ask what alternators will fit their brackets. I know a 1G, 2G and some 3G's should fit. Remember if you get a later model alternator you will have to change out the pulley.

I purchased the Crap bracket and used a alternator out of a 1996 Ford thunderbird. The alternator is a 3G and can support 130amps. Alternator was $90.00 off of ebay and the CRAP bracket was 160 I believe.

Great fitment and the alternator work PERFECTLY.

I would also like to know (for future reference) what pulleys he used or didn't. What belts were used?
Dave, you should write a book, Auto Electric's for those of you who know enough to be Dangerous.

Does yours hold under a full load? I am running a 130amp alternator with a CRAP bracket. Mine currently has one belt, and I cannot get it to stop slipping under load.

So, I have picked up a dual pulley for the alternator and a triple for the balancer so I can run two belts to the alternator, I just have't gotten around to swapping it all in.
