[quote quote=11222]G.M. switched to alternators in 1963. Getting a bracket for a ’63 F-85 would be the easiest thing to do without having to modify anything. Then you could get a rebuilt alternator for a ’63 and splice in your aftermarket wiring harness. You’ll have to check pulley alignment with the crank pulley, etc.[/quote]
This is exactly what I did on my 62. The 63 alternator bracket bolts right up. I initially used a 12SI that I had laying around but later went to a CS130. It’s been working fantastic for nearly five years now.
