Pad mount in place of J mount 5.9 ISB

Has anyone put a pad mount on the exhaust side of the motor there the alternator J mount is?
Or, are any of your motors already set up this way?

Thanks for the offer. But that alternator is too small for my application. I want a pad mount. The alternator I am using IS available in both pad and J, but it puts a significant pull on the belt. I was hoping the mix of a more solid mount and a dampener pulley would help it out. Worst case I can do some sort of brace on the J mount...

Bosch is 200 amps- which alternator are you going with? 40si? Not much room around back in this small motor.

I'd work about the pull on the bracket when loading that alternator, too. There is a cast bracket available, but not adjustable, IIRC. There are 2 sizes of J mount, differ at that outside bracket pad by .75 in or so.

430 amps@ 12v DC. Let me get my DC wire selection chart and see what sized cable I'd need.....


55si alternator/mobile welder

I like the Bosch as it produces majority of output at idle.

My previous setups all were around 450A with duals. I run 4/0

I KNOW you know what you are doing, but why so much juice? I realize it's your mobile shop, but wouldn't a little honda genny fit the bill? Elucidate me, please.

Air compressor? Those come in gas models. I'm stumped?
