    Has anyone swapped out their factory generator with a powermaster alternator?

    No. But I did switch over to a rebuilt Delco alternator (which they began using on the ’63’s) and much better performance than the generator. I’d never go back. Plus that generator weighs a ton and getting it on and back into position is a bitch :).

    Are you asking about a Powermaster alternator that looks like a generator?

    If all you care about is changing to a alternator, I also used the bracket from a 1963 215. Both a 12SI and a CS130 will fit this bracket with no mods. I swapped the pulley from the generator onto the CS130. Use the CS130 from a 1988-1990 Cadillac Fleetwood with the Olds 307 motor, which has the correct mounting ears and is 105 amps.

    What he said. Outperforms the first gen Delco, obviously.
