I'd be all over this if it wasn't for a serp truck. If you don't mind my asking, where did you get it? I'd like to find something similar for my truck. I'm ok with sending out my current one or even to doing it myself if I can source the parts somewhere.

My mechanic's uncle builds them. I think he used 2-3 standard ones to create this one. I'd be happy to ask if he'd make you one if you want?

Beside the pulley, I don't think there is much difference between serp and v-belt setup. You might argue that the alternator might not turn at the right speed and not generate the right rpm signal for the gauge, but I'm sure you could get used to that mental conversion quickly! or maybe I'm missing something else?

Does anyone know if this is true? If it will fit right on and I can just swap the pulley, this may work. Also, can someone chime in on the signal output? I don't want the gauges reading improperly, but I'm not sure it will, if I recall, the pulleys are similar in size.

Presumably it comes down to pulley size and therefore gearing.
Over speeding would be bad!

I'm sure someone will provide more details as I am sure someone tried this before. Signal output is based on rpm of the alternator. So if alternator turns faster than "expected" then engine rpm will read higher for sure. Engine rpm gauge might have to be recalibrated (if one cares).

Disco pulley is a bit smaller than D90 in diameter if I remember correctly (well, that's v8 3.9L v-belt D90 vs v8 4.0L Disco which I own). I have a few disco alternators I can measure tonight. The depth of the Disco alternator was a tad smaller than the D90 one but I did not see any reason why that would not work in a 90. I had both out at the same time a few weeks ago, so my memory is kinda fresh but I could still be wrong!

The 4.0L serp pulley was definitely a tad smaller (diameter) than the 90. If I remember correctly, it is also a tad narrower (at least has one less rib than my D90 belt/pulley).

Too bad this discussion is happening now... Just a few weeks ago I could have tried to put the disco alternator in my 90 and report.

Based on the difference in size of pulley, I would be hard pressed to think that the D90 alternator would be stressed in a disco. A disco alternator in a 90 would turn a little slower but I'd be surprised if we would see any difference in actual output. The Disco needed more output for sure since it has all the fancy high-output lights, gps, etc.

Maybe we should move this part of the conversation to the tech section instead of taking over a for sale post....

Further research leads me to believe it would be more involved than swapping the pulleys, so unfortunately I'm out.

Bump for a great Alternator though, good luck with your sale!

I believe the casting itself is different as well, more than just a small job to adapt. Thanks for looking!
