Alternator Tension Rod

Mon Jun 09, 2014 10:24 am

Men:
I outfitted my Cub Loboy with Hitachi alternator two cutting seasons ago . Had to grind out alternator tension rod to keep it off of alternator vent fan. Worked well for two seasons . Thing now refuses to stay in place and is contacting vent fan .

Questions:

1. Does any body here have a source for these things?

2. Does any body here make and sell these things ?

I am fabrication -challenged and can't make one for myself.

Obliged to all.

Clint makes one. Don't know if it will fit the Hitachi alternator. It is curved, to clear the alternator fan. PM him, he probably has the answer.

Thanks , Boss .

I finally found a picture of one of Clint's on the Forum . Too bad for me --cause it sure looks good.
