Original Alternator pictures

Heres some pics of the Alternator on my Nov 66 built, 67 SS350

The date code looks like a nov 66 built Alt as well
is that yellow mark an inspection mark of some type?

re: Original Alternator pictures

I am guessing someone had it apart and the yellow lines are reference points for reassembly

re: Original Alternator pictures

Letter I was not used in some date coding applications and true for alternators. Yours was made month of October. For the yellow line, I've not noted that yellow mark on previous alternators from the factory but it assume it could have been placed there or possibly as Kevin suggested.

Very easy......you can 'clock' the alternator half's wrong when re-assembling it after service and depending on the usage (engine type) it may not mount properly due to the rear section hitting a valve cover.

re: Original Alternator pictures

Simply an observation....the color looks to be very close to the same yellow used to mark the x on the bulkheads....appears to be a wax pencil as it looks like it weeped oily marks around the entire yellow stripe.

re: Original Alternator pictures

This is a few of the threads on alternator that may be useful. It appears your alternator is a heavy duty 61 amp from 67.
The yellow marking, I am sure is a indication the alternator was rebuilt at one time or the other. I say that because I had my alternator overhauled locally and when I got it back it was clocked 90 degrees off. The alternator hit the valve cover when I tried to install it. If the mark had been there from the factory that wouldn't have happened. I just took it back and he clocked it correctly.

that makes more sense as the car was a late Nov build, Thanks!
it also has Factory A/C hence the RPO K76 HD 61 Amp Alternator

Actually the 61 amp would have been part of/included with the RPO C60 four season air conditioning package. That's why you see so few under the K76 in the CRG options spreadsheet. Those are ones ordered outside of the C60 option.

Like to add what Rob is stating as I do agree the mark does have the same look as other yellow crayon marks that are found at times. Was the mark to help identify the higher amp alternator for the line??? On our 68Z there was a yellow long crayon mark on our bell housing which I've noted on other survivors and duplicated upon restoration. Why was that there, do not know! Reason I stated earlier it might have come from factory that way or again as Kevin suggested, a rebuild.

re: Original Alternator pictures

I think its factory, just my opinion, the original owner never mentioned anything about a rebuild on the alt,
and its only got 54K on the clock,,therefore it is my belief its factory,,probably will never know for sure

re: Original Alternator pictures

it's your car you car. believe what you want.
I am just saying that my 68 that I bought in 72 never had any markings anywhere and I talked to the original and second owner, and asked many ????

re: Original Alternator pictures

And you can believe what you want, I spoke with the original owner at length, he never mentioned a rebuild, but its really insignificant
