I ran the LFP dual pass H/E with the stock Mach bumper. It just pushed down on the bumper itself about 1/2". It was quite easy to get in there, and without cutting anything fit well enough.

With some home-made metal brackets that Machgsxr came up with.

I probably have some pics on my photobucket, but they block it at work. If I remember, I'll post 'em up when I get home this evening.

Im on number 5 or 6 on the ALT. All have been OEM but are rebuilt. I was told you cant buy new ones because the cores are alot easier to get now. This came from ford. Im on the same one for the past 4 months and it has a 3.4 pulley and i added a ground strap from the batt to the alt bracket. I have also figured out thats its the heat that has been killin mine. winter time i have 13 volts but in the summer its right at 12.

Re: Eaton Swap.....

Well turns out I don't have any pics of the brackets on my photobucket like I thought, and it was dark by the time I got home last night. I'll try and snap some pics of the brackets tonight after work.

BTW, I'm running a Motorcraft reman'd alt, and so far it's been fine for the last year and a half I've had it *knock on wood*. I'm running a 2.76 upper, and the stock size alt pulley. Soon to be running a 2lb lower.

Wow! Sorry to hear that man, I guess Im gonna start keeping an eye on mine more closely, Im still on the used one I got with the swap for almost a year now. I drive mostly on the highway so that might also help, Im sure it gets plenty of cooling.

BTW, I have a pic on my photobucket of the bracket, Ill post it when I get home.

Re: Eaton Swap.....

Ah, well if that's what you're looking to do, then my pics won't help you much; my shaker is bolted to the Eaton.

What you need to is just get some little aluminum/metal straps and screw them to the topside of the shaker where it would normally bolt onto the lower shaker and then onto the hood through the black rubber that fills up the rest of the gap that the top part of the shaker does not cover. Just make sure you catch a brace and not through the hood itself.

Oh ok, I have mine bolted to the blower. I can't complain, out of like 10-12 people that walked by my car at the track with the hood open, only one was smart enough to bend over and look under the shaker, then he said, "Ohhh, sneaky!!", the rest were like, "Nice, whats done to it?(while staring at the motor)" LMAO!!!

Re: Eaton Swap.....

I just wanted to ask a quick question which I figured didn't require a new thread. Is it a good idea to get used cobra rods? Has any of you had a bad experience from purchasing used rods?

Re: Eaton Swap.....

holy crap i thought it was just me trashing alternators.....im running all stock pullies (upper and lower) I shift mine at 7000-7100 on a regular basis and always thought that was why. Why are my buddies with real cobras not having alternator issues? somethings got to be different with our cars causing this. I am on my 3rd in 25k miles

Re: Eaton Swap.....

Go search the Terminator section on SVTP. You'll see that PLENTY of Cobras have a problem with their alternator. There's a guy on there under the name "start n charge" I believe that makes custom alternators to combat the problem.
