When many FC owners run into charging problems with the stock systems the decision has to be made to rebuild the generator and check the condition of the regulator or convert over to an alternator.  Bruce Hamilton has a FC that the previous owner had installed an alternator in and Bruce was kind enough to take some pictures of the installation.  It's kind of tough to get all the right angles but Bruce did a fine job of taking pictures and pointing out the details.  Bruce also mentioned that the early CJ-5 page had some diagrams of the installation but their site had a meltdown and are in the process of restoring it.  I'll include the link once it's back online.  Thanks for all your effort Bruce.  It will give many an idea of what it takes to install one.
