Leece Neville Alternator
#1
I am removing the Leece Neville alternator on the 86 with 8V92 . The alternator is mounted above the bell housing and drives off the blower . There are three bolts going through the alternator housing and spacer with cooling vents , threading into the drive housing. According to the Detroit manual the alternator should separate from the drive at the spacer . I have been unable to get it to budge there , however I can get about 3/8 inch movement between alt housing and spacer . There is white sealer between the spacer and drive housing , it's either stuck very well or I'm missing something here . I'm hoping someone out there can shed light on this or point me in the direction of a schematic . The manual that I downloaded doesn't have an illustration of the alternator mounting .
Any information very much appreciated .
Thanks,
Chris

Alternator update ... 12mm 1.25 tap threads right into fan housing , came in from the drive side with 3/8 cap screw as a jack screw and voila ! Alternator came free . I think there should be a gasket there instead of the sealer which had the flanges stuck together. Now to get this greasy lump working ...

Leece Neville saga continues . Found information plate indicating the alternator is a factory reman unit by Sheller -Globe , a company defunct since 1989 . Tag indicates alternator is a 14 volt unit with 75 amp output . This is interesting in that the Newell manual states that standard equipment is 160 amp Leece Neville. Search begins for the correct unit.

Chris, an alternator shop should be able to rebuild your alternator with a variety of output amps, or you can search for them online. Buying online might even be less expensive than having an alternator shop rebuild yours.
