    Rear bracket for CS144 alternator

    Thought that I would share the info on a bracket I made to hold the rear of my new CS144 alternator.

    I got the idea from a article that I saw on the net. I don't recall the site it was on. But the person bent the original rear alt. bracket towards the rear. In don't think the valve cover could be removed in that configuration. So I bent the top of this bracket towards the front of the truck.

    I planned on only drilling one hole. But I drilled the hole to close to the bend and the bracket would not sit flat. So I also used a bolt in the existing hole.



    This is the new bracket bolted to the original modded rear bracket.



    Alt. all bolted up. I liked the way it turned out. Picture is a little dark. But the bracket can still be seen.

    Re: Rear bracket for CS144 alternator

    Phil, could you take another picture for me please? The link is dead and i am very curious about this as I need to do this.

    The other question for anyone that has tackled this is: is it possible to go back to a stock alt with this modification or are you commited to the CS144 for the foreseeable future?

    Thanks!

    Mark

    I would really look into a AD244 or AD230 alternator from LS stuff. They are updated over the older CS styles and have internal fans to not cut up the rad hose or fly off through the hood. Internal fans and components stay cooler and last longer.

    I already own a CS144. I was trying to save some money seeing as I was worried my alternator is going out and don't want to spend $150 over here.

    IIRC the CS144 is plug and play. Same plug, should be able to go back if you need to. I went AD244 myself

    I was wanting to know if the drilling that you do causes misalignment with the stock alt should you swap back.

    Im running this one, came from a different source tho. You need the pigtail that plugs in to it and a resistor. Im running a 2500 Watt RMS system and Im about to install electric fans. Wanted to make sure I had enough power. Summit Truepart Select Replacement Alternators 8292N-253A - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing
