    I find that a cannon shot a various intervals keeps the birds out of my garage.

    1964 Wildcat 401cid timing gear

    I found lots of metal, due to the valve head coming through the piston and bouncing around destroying the piston skirts, but I dont remember any plastic.

    1964 Wildcat 401cid timing gear

    I took my 64 425 apart when I dropped a valve and it did not have any plastic on the gears. As far as I know, I was the first one in the engine.

    The alternator is under the A/C compressor. It is a Powergen alternator that looks very similar to a generator. (except inside).

    ITS ALIVE... After some custom bracket work and find a belt that was bigger, I was able to work this morning and get it running again. I did have my wife standing by with the Fire extinguisher just in case though. It make a difference, the noise I attributed to the compressor has gone away. My gas pedal start works and I have a generator light. My AC blower is much better now, I actually could feel it coming out the drivers side vent and the turn signals flash faster. I am happy now. I can even live with the connections being on the bottom. Here is how mine is mounted and the adjusting bracket I made from an universal bracket I cut and drilled.
  7. You need a road trip to Ohio dont you ? Take your new wagon, it might fit in that.

    No, If you look at the 401s without AC they sit upright on the passenger side. The 401 WITH AC hangs off of the bracket. The compressor is up top. And the adjusting bracket is down below. Totally different configuration.

    Wiring, if it works (LOL) was not hard. I removed the regulator and used two of the wires from the generator to feed the Gen Light and the relay for the push to start. Ran the feed wire over to the lug that the battery connects to, The relay for the push to start sits where the voltage regulator sat before. We will see if it works. (Cross Fingers)

    I figure out how to make a bracket from a universal bracket from Mr. Gasket. Now I have it all mounted and line up and have to shop for some new Belts. As far as what I go, looking at pictures from various people, it looks like it is made for Non AC Cars as they seem to sit with the bracket on the bottom as opposed to hanging from the bracket. I will talk to them tomorrow about this.

    I think the whole problem is the face I have A/C on mine. I would love to see a picture of yours if you can do that. The one picture I saw showed the alternator on top of the brakes while mine hangs from the bracket. This will explain why the wire connections are on the bottom.

    Well we thought we had it solved. We went ahead and wired the car for all of its improvements. We had the powergen hanging on the bracket after a little modification/ We were putting the adjuster bracket on and no matter what we did we couldn't get it adjusted. We pulled it back off and the ear on the alternator is in the wrong place. You can see the ear is cocked a little less in the :Plowegen versus the original one.

    First try this morning was to hang the Powergen from the generator brackets. IT DOES NOT FIT. The holes dont line up and it looks like the belts wont either. I am about a 1/2 hole off on the front. Thought about doing some modifying of the bracket but not ready to do that yet. In the house cooling off and waiting fro a second set of eyes. I am glad I started with this as opposed to the wiring.
