The one thing you need most (after the money to do the project) is patience, and a lot of it!! You ever hear the old saying "good things come to those who wait", truer words were never spoken regarding pro-cars. Take a deep breath and relax, you'll be surprised at the results. We've owned our '64 for 4 years and still have some things to do, but it all seems to happen eventually. As long as it runs and drives SAFELY, you've got it made.

For anyone who happens to be looking for one, I was able to find someone who knew exactly what I was looking for. Leece Neville 4800 is basically a new version on the Delco Remy that was in the car originally. Just modernized with an internal regular etc. Just ordered one!!!

It's internally regulated. You can get an external one if you want. They have a ton of options. Leece Nevile 4800 series alternator.

I can relate. I tend to be pretty impatient myself, I see the car and I think of all the things that need to be done and I try to do them all immediately. I need to work on that myself, being impulsive can be a problem of its own

This was the alternator that was on my ex military 72 CB. The DOD had them in there contract. That one was externally regulated. At that time I don't think there was the other option.

Where did you order your from and how much did it run you if you dont mind me asking? I may be in the market for one soon. My searches turned up $400 - 800
