hi!

when i purchased my bel air 57 the generator was in the trunk so i rebuilt it before i try to put it on but now when i am trying to put it on it looks like the generator is to long on the bracket and its a standard generator not the powersteering one!

is it any parts missing i have tryed to look on pics but dont get it..

any one have some pics on the lover mounts for it?

its looks like all the other ones on the pics,

its a gap between the rear mount and the bolt hole! should it be a sleve there or something

kind regards joakim

so why the different brackets and generator sizes?

does it depending on year or is it just so

The longer Generator produced more amperage than the shorter one. I think it was 25 and 35 amp, there may have been a 30 amp but I'm not 100% sure. Canadian cars all had the larger generator.

With out Jalapeno here to back me up....I'd assume the 6" was for the lower amp gen and the 61/2 for the higher amp....And the 7" was for the gen with the P/S pump.
