J16 alternator

Recommended Posts

Hello, everybody 

       I’m looking for any info on a j16 alternator. I purchased a j16 and it only needs the alternator. By any chance does someone have info where I can purchase one and would be a upgraded alternator as well. Thanks, and take care as always .

 Only the J13 was imported in the mid '60s 520 truck. One of those might fit but very low output. 

 

I think Mexico had J18s and J15s in the 620 or maybe the 720 trucks. Mexican 510s had J series engines. Where did you get it? The J16 was, I think, strictly a JDM use engine. Was it imported?  

 

An early D21 Hardbody truck had a Vee pulley and about 80/90 amp output. Make it fit. Your harness needs two pair of wires to be joined together to convert it for internal voltage regulator.

Generally when Nissan makes an alternator they are used on several different cars and engines so the mounts are different but the alternators are basically the same.

I read a guy named mtbmiller  installed a gm alternator for his j16 on a 521 but idk which gm alternator and he hasn’t been on this page over 7 years.

I have a GM 1 Wire from a 1980s(?) Camaro on my 1965 Datsun 320 with the E1 engine. Bolted right in...Had Scott and "The Rebuilder" in Auburn, WA even build it for the positive-ground electrical system.
