And for anyone thinking of using a 3G alternator, there is a very good chance you'll need to use a double v-belt pulley setup or it will slip.

I had to modify the back of my stock '86 2.3T double v pulley so it wouldn't rub on the 3g's case.
'72 Runabout - 2.3T, T5, MegaSquirt-II, 8", 5-lugs, big brakes.
'68 Mustang - Built roller 302, Toploader, 9", etc.

Mine worked fine with single pulley.  Have gone back to original alternator now that big stereo, lights removed.
